The Endless Lake is an ocean in dog terms, having flooded the mainland as well as holding floatcages.[1]


The Endless Lake is a wide area of water,[1] with a salt-like taste.[1] Waves lap at the shore,[1] and it is known to be deadly to dogs.[1] As of A Pack Divided, floatcages have been seen driven in the Endless Lake.[1]


In the Original Series

The Empty City

As the Leashed Dogs leave the city and come across a hilltop allowing them to see the distance they've covered, they see the remains of the city, and the ocean beside it.

The Endless Lake

When the dogs find the lake, they call it "The Endless Lake", and they try to get away from it, and go into a beach house.
When the Fierce Dogs find the Wild Pack, Alpha is attacked by one of the Fierce Dogs. He keeps stepping back, and eventually trips. He tries to hold on to the road, but it is slippery, and he falls in.
Moon's pups fall in and Martha saves them, but Spring was also caught and Martha was too late. 

Storm of Dogs

When Lucky is held captive in the Fierce Dog base, he finds that salty water is gathering at the bottom of the pit, thinking that it is coming from the Endless Lake. 
When Lucky and the Leashed Dogs go to rescue the longpaws from the Big Growl, they notice the Endless Lake is acting strangely.
After they warn the longpaws, they try to run up the cliff and back to camp, however a wave from the Endless Lake tears the part of the cliff and the path they were supposed to take.

In the Gathering Darkness arc

A Pack Divided

When Moon is punished for supposedly eating and stealing prey from the prey pile, she is sent to keep watch on High Watch, a cliff-edge that gave her a view of the Endless Lake, and floatcages that were appearing along the coast.

Dead of Night

Storm investigates Whisper's murder, approaching Moon on High Watch to ask her whether she saw anything that night of his death. From her view, she can see the Endless Lake and the Wild Pack camp.
Later, when Moon is relieved of her punishment, Storm is elected as the first dog to take watch on High Watch by Lucky. She paces there the entire night, cliff-side by the Endless Lake.

Into the Shadows

Believing Breeze's story about the Endless Lake, the pups run down to the Endless Lake, trying to cross it. The pack spreads out to find them, and Storm spots them, splashing in the waves. She, Beetle, Thorn, and Breeze rescue them and bring them back to the pack.

Red Moon Rising

While sleepwalking, Storm unconsciously takes Tumble, and tells him to hide in the rocks by the Endless Lake, scaring him.


  • In The Empty City, the Endless Lake is called an ocean. However, throughout the series, dogs call the ocean The Endless Lake.[2]
