    I think it’d be cool if there was also a stronger wolf variant for Mountain biomes, in order to help give the biome more of an identity. These Mountain Wolves would be larger in size, have a mixed fur color (I.e. the iconic black, grey, & brown wolf fur), have more health, move quicker, and would become hostile at night. Taming a Mountian Wolf would also require a lot more time and patience, but would act as an excellent guard dog for a player’s base.

    They should have a small, fluffy, white dog for the snow biomes! That would be adorable and would make sense since it needs to be warm in the snow and could hide in the snow to protect itself from predators.

    I like that idea! I like the idea of the dog matching the biome. And dogs being apart of the village when the village spawns.

    Don't you mean wolves? It is stated in (Updated) About the Mobs, Animals, and non-Huminoids Area they ask that you [and I quote], "Please avoid suggestions that are too similar to existing mobs or just variations on a theme! You know you're veering too far into this when you're like "it's a X, but (feature) instead".

    When talking about a certain animal like the wolf, don't go off into it's variants because that is now off topic. This was added after this though, so I'm just saying for next time!

     

    With that said, I love this idea! A different wolf for each biome!

    Please make this happen, i also think it would be a good idea if each of them had different abilities and different height.

    Perhaps in the Savanah, should Hyenas be added, that can be the dog breed there. Or even manned wolves https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360053331891-Hyena

    Amazing idea! I don't think the house-pet dogs would work nearly as well now that we have cats fulfill the same role as of 1.14, but I love the idea of the Wolf/Coyote/Dingo skin split!

    Pretty cool, but make the canines a little different because it would add wolves to more places, making it easier to get a wolf. ;D

    I really enjoy the idea of a mod that adds more variations of wolves (much like the cats) but for the ones that spawn in villages should be more like "farm" type dogs rather than poodles or beagles because well youre in a village not a city.

    Village dogs should be more like mutts that come in a variety of colors shapes and sizes, mostly having browns and blacks with different white patterns. these mods can "protect" villages and nearby animals (sheep, cows, pigs, chickens) and even have their own characteristics based on biome. Dogs in the snow are a little tougher than say those in the deserts but the desert dogs are a lot faster than those in the snow and dogs in the plains are kinda normal and dogs in forests can possible go further out when chasing other mods.

    Color of the village dogs can even vary from biome to biome with a color scheme to some what match its surroundings. Like say youre in a snowy biome youd find more "husky " type dogs that are a little fluffier/hardier. Or a desert biome youd find more lean/agile. Grassy plains youd find more regular type dogs. Etc.

    For the wolves as well it would be cool to see hyenas/maned wolves/artic wolves/timber wolves/cyotes/jackles/etc. Even if some arent part of wolf family these would still be interesting mods to be included.

    This is a fantastic idea. Jackals, hunting dogs, and dholes would be great additions as well.

    Make the different variants of dogs have different skins and sizes. Huskies can spawn in snowy biomes and american bull dogs can spawn in plains or oak forests. They also need to look like the actual dog and not like the standard wolf but with different textures. 

     

    thanks ADD THIS please

    PLEASE ADD HUSKIES AND AMERICAN BULL DOGS pls

    They should add dogs and make them separate mobs from wolves just like what they did to cats and ocelots. Dogs should have different personalities just like pandas depending on their texture which will be different dog breeds. For example, They could have a poodle that could be dyed different colors like a sheep and can be shorn for wool and a golden retriever that could hold items in their mouths and give them to the player just like how foxes hold items in their mouths. They would also have dogs that are untamable like wolfs that should be hyenas and dingoes.

    You could have Dholes spawn in Jungles, African Hunting dogs spawn in savannas, and maybe coyotes spawning in plains.

    100% agree with this. Especially since tamed cats have had different breeds for several years.
