    I would love to have this as a feature, it just seems unfair that cats have had multiple skins for what seems to be a long time, as well as horses. Having this feature would make dogs more unique and not as outcasted from the other pets. Please make this a feature.😊🐾🦴

    I hope they have breeds that have behaviors akin to their real life counter parts. Like a german shepard that sticks close to you and has maybe higher damage then the other breeds.

    A wolf's fur pattern should be dependent on the biome it is found in; just like in real life. An ocelot, when tamed, becomes a cat. But a wolf, when tamed, is a tamed wolf? This doesn't make much sense. I seen in the comments that someone wants a Corgi in the game. That my friend would be an add-on as it doesn't fit with the flow of the game. Taming a wolf should not create a Corgi...because that doesn't make sense. You just gave a wolf a bone and now it turned into a small Corgi (that is the result of tons of breeding). A tamed wolf should just be referred to as a dog. It should also generate different fur patterns once tamed different from the wolf, just like an ocelot and cat do. This makes the most sense.

    We should either separate dogs and wolves like they did to cats. If they do that, we should still be able to take a wolf as well as a dog. The wolves stay the same but all you do is add a separate dog mob that looks like a wolf but with different skins.

    Yeah different dog breeds should be added in! Each dog breed could have a tiny quirk like, dogs known for retrieving would bring the player random items every now and then and dogs known for hunting would have a higher attack. But the more simple option would be to make all dog breeds bring the player random items. Also it would be nice if a dog tag would appear on the dog's collar if the player uses a name tag on a tamed dog.

    Yeah, I don’t get it when Minecraft gives cats different colours but not dogs.

    I also think that there should be a "roam" option for them to be able to move around without following you. Let's say you leave them outside in a danced area, they should be free to roam around and not just stay sitting down in one place it will look a lot more lively

    Sounds like a pretty good idea! Wouldn't mind seeing some texture variation for the dogs/wolves!

    YES!! I really want more wolf variants! Arctic wolves, Black wolves, and brown or tan wolves!

    I think if this is going to be breeds instead of just colour, then only bigger breeds should be included. I don’t think a pug, a chihuahua or other small dogs would be good at fighting. I would also like if different breeds acted differently. Ex: some are faster, some are stronger, some have further vision, etc.

    It would make a lot of sense if mountain dogs of some kind were added in the Caves and Cliffs update to aid the player to explore the mountains. This could be to make it easier to get around with a sled and potentially steak on a stick for directing the dog in the right direction.

    It should work like how ocelots used to work, where the dog texture is random, but looks like different breeds of domesticated dogs (though I feel the wolf option should also be available too). I would love to see some size and model change to reflect the dogs breed and traits if possible.

    Since every dog comes from a wolf I think at first when you tame them they should turn into similar dogs like huskies or german shepherds. But by breeding your tamed dogs you would get new breeds like beagles, bulldogs, greyhounds, etc.
