    I also suggested more wolf colors so of course I would vote for more dog colors! Honestly, why did ocelots get different skins when you tamed them while wolves still just look like wolves with collars when tamed. I hope something like this happens to the wolf/dog mob!

    I 100% agree with this, especially with the new cat breed update. I have talked it over with some fellow Minecraft players and even people that just started playing that it would be really cool and make dogs more interesting to have court like German Shepard, or Dalmatian, or Golden Retrievers or something like that, and like I mention before, with the new cat update with all the new cat breed (omg i loved that update thank u so much for that!!!!) now that there are more cats I think it would be about one we added more dog breeds especially since since I could remember there have always been at least three different types of cat breed and I think this update is far over due (not to sound demanding). In conclusion, adding more dog breeds would be an awesome feature to add in and would probably draw in more players.

    it would be awesome if there were multiple breeds of dogs. the more the better. There have been mods for this for years, I'm surprised this hasn't been added sooner

    Yes yes! This could be akin to how rabbits function. I love variety, and I love dogs too so why not! I wouldn't mind having fur coats that look very reminiscent of Gold Retrievers, Samoyed, and my personal favorites, German Shepards. Perhaps Mojang could even throw us a bone, that when we rename our dog a certain way its coat changes to that of an employee there. (Similar to bunnies and the name "Toast").

    Sounds amazing. The dogs fur can be diffferent in each biome, like a hairy one in ice plains or tundra.

    They should make different shaped dogs so you could find something like a German Shepherd, or a Pug

    Just like cats, I think dogs should have different breeds. Example Husky or German Sheperd!

          I get what your saying. I have 0 arguments but I'd like to add a thought that involves skins. Dogs not only have different fur colours and types, they also have different sizes! It would be awesome to see Mojang add different heights on animals and different fur colours and breeds!

    Nice! How about a retriever dog that brings stuff back to you.  Like, maybe if you kill something it will fetch you the drops or similar

    If we were to go through with this, the dog breeds we use should be at least large dogs with the basic body shape of a wolf, for instance golden retriever, samoyed, husky, german shepherd, etc. Obviously you wouldn’t find a pug roaming the frozen taigs. I would prefer instead of having dog breeds to just have varied fur colors, since that is what happens in real life, and the only reason cat breeds are more varied in Minecraft is that they have already been domesticated in villages. It would make more sense if dogs did not have a giant variety of big and small breeds and instead had a few basic wolf colors. Black, black with brown, gray, gray with white, tan, and white. No pugs.

    Also, the wolf color should be biome-specific, so black and brown in taigas, and maybe they can add wolves in other places as well to correspond with real life. Tan in deserts and plains, brown and gray in forests, white in snowy biomes.

    I would love biome based wolves.

    For example, when you tame one say in the desert, it would be a light brown or tan colored dog, like a lab or a retriever. In the savannah, maybe have wolves that are maned wolves, tall and lanky, maybe more secluded, you could find them at night time or in dens, and when you tame them, you get a great dane, or even just have the maned wolf with a collar. In the taiga biome, make wolves that blend in more, more white coats, maybe silver coats, they could spawn in groups like regular wolves, but are solitary, and have dens that you can find with bones and such where you find puppies. When you tame these wolves, you get huskies of different colors. 

    It would add more diversity into the game, giving the player more reasons to get wolves/dogs for their base.

    I can offer my services in making the wolf textures and the dog textures if need be, but i would love to see more variety like the cat's.

    I think there should be different types of dogs in Minecraft. Like a pug, Yorkie, German Shepard,etc...

    This is one of the first things I thought minecraft could improve on. Breeds would add a lot more to the game. I saw a comment saying the breed defines how the dogs act and I think that is such a great idea! Also a dog that has it’s own animation woulda be cool too, for example they would lay down at night, howl and you can make them walk around without following you. I hope we see more fur types of breeds for dogs in the future updates. (Possibly even animations!)
