    I'm half and half, I love it but I don't think it fits the Minecraft vibe. Yes cats have different fur colors but when you think of a Minecraft dog its unique and can easily imagine it.

    I like the Idea’s show previously. Like the primary and secondary colors then patterns, and stuff like personalities and being able to train the dogs to do stuff. 

    I think it should go like this:
    You can find wolves in the wild in different biomes with different colors,
    -Snowy Tundra (White, light gray and dark gray)
    -Taiga (Red, Black, Brown)
    -Snowy Taiga (Red, Brown, White, Dark Gray and Light Gray)
    -Oak/Birch Forest (Red, Black, Brown, Gray (Dark and Light))
    -Savannah (Red, Black)
    -Desert (Yellow, Red)

    Once you tame the wolf it can get a secondary color 50% of the time,
    -Reds (Yellow or Brown)
    -Light Gray (Dark Gray or Black)
    -Dark Gray (Light Gray or Black)
    -Black (White, Light Gray or Dark Gray)
    -Yellow (Red or Brown)
    -Brown (Yellow or Red)
    -White (Light Gray, Dark Gray or Black)
    -Black (Light Gray, Dark Gray or White)

    And then the secondary color will take a pattern:
    -Spotted
    -Stripped
    -Paws and Chest
    -Gradiation
    -Muzzle
    -Tail tip

    For some, like the Muzzle, Paws and Chest and Tail tip can combine on one wolf.

    And finally, this one I came up with on the fly but I think it would be cool to have the tail of the wolf curl and get fluffier about 10% of the time. But I think it should be in a way so that it still looks like a wolf and not so much a dog. 

    Woah I did it typed all of that out, I know that this will most likely take a LOT of coding but I think it would make the game much better so that we can tell our dogs apart more than just their collar and please make this for all editions of the game.

    Personally, it would have been nice if they kept the ability to tame the ocelot and you had a chance that it kept the ocelot coat. I would be very disgusted if they ruined the wolf and made it turn into dogs and like the fox. I like taming a wolf in the game since I can't have a pet wolf in real life. I think having variants for all mobs would be awesome especially making that easier to accomplish on bedrock.

    Wolf/dog skins and breeds are important additions! While they don't add any value gameplay-wise, cosmetics are very important in a game like Minecraft. Players can personalize further by having variety in their pets. Wolf armor is also important to have, as they're too fragile, and they cannot regenerate/play dead like Axolotls.

    I think there could be more varietys like with spots. There could also be short, and big dogs. And maybe when they breed it could be a mixture of the colors and spots.

    It’d be cool if wolves themselves had more variation based on the biomes maybe

    Yes we need this so we dont have the exact same dog and so we can tell who they are without naming them.

    Of course. One skin for a dog gets boring after a while. Minecraft already had such a mechanic with ocelots(in old versions)

    I think white, light gray, gray, black, cream, golden, brown, and red (same color as red-head hair).

    I love this idea because it is a very good idea (voted)

    This idea has been waiting to be said for too long. I totally agree! Having a whole pack of wolves of all the same color is too plain and difficult, especially when the only way to tell your dogs apart are their name tags. (Not that I've had a whole pack of wolves before...)

    Also, Minecraft would a little bit more joyful with unique wolves. Please ponder this idea, Mojang Team!

    Cat have multiple variants so why don't dogs?

    I think this is a good idea and it has been talked about.

    I would absolutely love for new dog skins to be introduced into minecraft! I have been waiting years for this idea to spring, I thought it was quite unfair for the cats to get different skins but the tamed wolf only one basic colour. Please consider this idea of adding new skins to dogs thanks a bunch mojang, - Grace (AKA: GJaggar)
