    Or the wolves could already have differing fur colors/types (brown, black, grey, white...).  They could be biome based and the colors are singular to each pack.

    Yeah, and they could be actual breeds!

    I'd like to see dog fur act more like the way tropical fish varieties work, but perhaps with fewer varieties. Base Color + Secondary Color + Pattern. Each biome where canines are found would have one to three possible varieties: white and light grey in snowy, dark grey, brown, and black in woods, and brown or yellow in desert and savanna, for example. Taming the canine keeps the base color, and randomly picks a secondary color and pattern.

    Yes, I was thinking just like when you tame an ocelot, it gets a random skin/ fur coat type. If the same thing happened for dogs that would be awesome

    I like the suggestion of the wolves already having a predetermined fur color but and generalizing it to one area for certain colors like with the Llama. So in the higher and colder regions, they would be more white and grey with the occasional red, brown, or black color. Warmer forested areas would have more browns and reds with a few grey or black.  No pack has all of the same colors though so it'd be more realistic if a couple were different.

    the different "skins" should have unique skills. Like the brown wolf can find iron ore or the white wolf can randomly dig up items.

    Yeah, Wolves skins should be biome based. I don't think they should turn into a random breed, because humanity took centuries to create the current dog breeds.

    I would love to have this feature. In my opinion, I'd want it similar to rabbits. In different biomes, warmer or colder, would have different colors. 

    In colder biomes and climates wolves would have black, white, or gray fur colorings and marks. In warmer climates they'd have more browns and reds. Altogether, I just want more dog/wolf varients, almost all the other animals have them. Why not wolves?

    I think it should be random like when you tame an ocelot but instead you get a random dog breed like a Chihuahua, German Shepard, or husky for example

    Especially since they are redoing the cats in 1.14, the dogs need some love now!

    I am glad that you are not going to make them have pink fur.

    There should be different dog breeds like husky, German shepherd,pitbull and other types.Im not saying that it should have all dog breeds in the world but it would have more dog breeds about 50 or less

    We should for sure get dogs of different breeds, shapes, sizes, and colors!

    yeah adding onto what you said there should be brown black and white i think there should be simple colors of dogs and no popular modern day dog breeds but possibly some spots of color like white paws, white snout, brown spot on the dogs back, etc) brown and black dogs could be found in taigas, brown rarely spawning in the desert. white dogs in the snow. Each dog could have different advantages. White might be larger making it seem like they have a thicccccer coat, water breathing and be faster in water, black dogs could have fire and could resistance and be able to swim in lava (and you could possibly go into the lava if the dog was within 20 blocks and would also allow you to see farther while you are in the lava) brown dogs could have strength and 10-15 hearts health. every dog could have 4-8 hearts. as much as players want it, i dont think there should be many varieties of dogs because it would seem too much like the  doggy styles mod.

    I think they should just add stray dogs kinda like what they did with cats

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

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

    I would definitely love to see different variations of dogs. I love animals in general, so I think this would definitely help out a lot of players to be able to tell the difference between who's dog is who's. And I hope it's not much to ask for, but I would absolutely love to see pugs! A Pugs and Paws update?

    And some of the dogs have droopy ears or pointy ears or long tails or short tails

    And Maybe they have different facial features as well kind of like how the cat skins look different and their faces are different as well.

    There is a resource pack for this that should be implemented in the games, its name is "Breeds" but it doesn't work very good... anyway I think these different types of fur should be in base of the spawning biome, grey wolves in the mountains,  huskys in the snowy biomes and so on...

    if they add new dog fur they should add new cat fur and new rabbit fur. they could add taby cats or go for more of the bengal look. for dogs they could have a tri colour which is more black white and brown
