We present a genome assembly from an individual male Canis lupus orion (the grey wolf, subspecies: Greenland wolf; Chordata; Mammalia; Carnivora; Canidae). The genome sequence is 2,447 megabases in span. The majority of the assembly (98.91%) is scaffolded into 40 chromosomal pseudomolecules, with the X and Y sex chromosomes assembled.
