Just then the Father came within sight of the home, and the Wolf was barely able to save himself from the Dogs by a clever bit of running.

Could you explain the meaning of "a clever bit of running"?

Where did you see this, DCJCJC?

We ask you to name the source of every quotation.
Also, please tell us something about the kind of writing this is. Is this a story in which the Wolf is in some ways like a human?

It isn't explained, and it's a slightly odd expression to use, but I'd assume that the wolf employed clever evading tactics.

It just means "some clever running".
