Although you seem to have answered the question yourself, I do not think that you are absolutely correct.  I would say, instead, that both of these two wolves are leader of the pack that Miyax comes to see as her own.

At first, of course, Amaroq is leader.  He leads through most of the book.  But then, as Miyax is nearing civilization, he is killed by men hunting from an airplane.

At that point, Kapugen becomes leader, although he needs help from Miyax and the other wolves to learn how -- he's not really old enough to know how on his own.
