Animal spirits as native american helpers?

I am part Cherokee. My grandfather was full Cherokee. Everyone in my family talks about having animal helpers. I am 17. I recently have had a couple of dreams about wolves. My sister got a wolf puppy last year. The wolf only listens to me. Could a wolf be my helper? I think it is. Does anyone else have helpers?
Update: Also please don't answer saying I'm a "dumb cracker." I posted this question before and for some reason this bítch called me a dumb white cracker.
Update 2: Sorry for offending everyone. All I did was ask a question. The reason I was curios was because my dads friend was full Cherokee. He lived on a reservation and so forth so on. If your offended by my question then don't answer it please. Idk why everyone feels the need to freak out over this.
