    im a dog person and have owned a few. it would be nice to have dogs be represented at the same level as cats in minecraft. who knows, maybe just like with cats at minecon live we could get a dog skin vote

    I agree with some of the other people here that it might be a good idea if there were biome-based variants on dog textures, especially since Mojang already did it with cats. Of course, it might be frustrating in creative mode to have to spawn a wolf and tame it 1000s of blocks away and bring it to their base. Maybe in creative mode, spawning textures are random, no matter what biome you're in?

    I think it shuld be a bit more like how cats got a new mob in 1.14.

    I think they should perform different functions with the different breeds. For example; A german shepard breed could hunt hostile mobs with you and a sheepdog could heard animals for you. Another could be a bloodhound that sniffs resources out.

    Yes, I love this idea and they could also have like Dalmatians fur, German shepherds fur, etc. and also adding a "dog egg like you did with the cats and ocelots! thanks!

    This is plain genius, but i think it should be different breeds instesd of just colours. I seen a comment about different breeds having different abilities like one could find iron and another one could find fossils. I would love for this to be implemented into the game.

    Wolfs should still be tamable however their offspring should gain different traits. I still think wolf skin should exist.

    Cats have all different fur so it's only fair that dogs have different fur too. Plus, there are many species of dog in real life.

    They should do what they have with cats. Have them spawn with different skins and maby dogs would be there own mob and have wolves separate

    I think there should be a very similar update as they did with cats. Although making different breeds would be more difficult seeing as there are many different sizes of dogs, I think this would be amazing. I remember back when I was excited for wolves to become a thing in Minecraft, though they haven't seemed to change at all. I can see how this would be difficult but I think it should definitely be attempted if not done.

    I would like dogs to have different fur when you tame them, just like ocealots, there fur gets randomly changed, this would add a lot of personality, and excitement to dogs! 🙂

    I think that the wolves should be alicated to different biomes and have different damage health and skills

    Yeah, like breeds that spawn in villiages so we could have German Shepherd or Labs or smth like that, and wolves still being able to be tamed, just no color variation.

    perhaps if each dog breed could have a natural instinct and specialty in addition to the fur color. Just an idea.

    Cats have this feature, so why can't wolves?

    Some dogs should have different shapes so there could be a thinner dog along with others

    I'd add this but more like the rabbits, or the fox. So biome based wolf skins. No proper breeds, just a bit of variation on the wolves colours. I don't think modern day breeds fit with the games overall ambience. I'd have maybe 8 possible variations on the wolf, with it depending on their biome what one they are.

    I'd also put an added feature in, similar to the horses. Nothing OP, but just allow variation in health, speed, and attack stats on the wolves. Assigned at random just like the horses.

    This gives you even more incentive to go out exploring as you really want a specific colour wolf, with all the best possible stats.

    Maybe even add in a super rare skin. I dunno, a pure black one with red eyes? Give it like a 1 in 1000 chance of spawning only in very select biomes. Make it a lot harder to tame and have ever so slightly better than all the others attack stat. Again nothing OP, only a little bit more. Make it a challenge to go out hunting for this elusive wolf. Make it a bragging point if you find AND tame one.

    I aggree if it comes to biome based skins. I think there should be arctic wolves, and brown and gray wolves in the taiga biome. The desert biomes should have short haired, red or blonde dogs. Upon taming arctic wolves would change into huskys, taiga wolves would be German shepherds, and the desert wild dogs would turn into basenji. Hmm... you would be able to keep your dog's original coat by taming it the same way as you tame foxes.

    I think how about dog breeds like Dobermans,German shepherds,Husky or more dogs but big dogs 

    Not small ones because it would not fit in minecraft

    This is necessary. I could bring so many dog-lovers into the game this way. A relatively easy way to implement this would be to have different colored wolves spawn in different biomes.

    That would be a great idea since we already have skins for cats.

    Maybe there are slightly different kinds of wolves (even coyotes, the foxes, etc) in different biomes and if you tame them and breed them with ones from other biomes, they turn into different breeds. For example, say you find a brown wolf in one biome and a black one in another, breed them together and you get a dog that looks like a German Shephard.
