    Also, I was thinking that these different types of wolves would have different abilities.

    Like the regular wolf, which is probably based off a gray wolf, should be like gray wolves and have more hearts.

    Other wolves, like the dingo, would give speed to itself and you around hostile mobs for a small certain amount of time.

    If they hopefully add redwoods, there should be a variation of wolf, kinda like the red wolf. This wolf should give fire resist when you or it is around fire or lava.

    The snow wolf, which could be based off the arctic wolf, could give invisibility for a small amount of time around hostile mobs.

    The coyote could give poison damage for maybe two seconds when it attacks a mob.

    A black wolf, which only spawns at night, should give the player night vision for a small amount of time, then have a cool down for a much longer amount of time.

    Hellhound in nether fortresses? Just an idea

    Coyotes aren’t really wolves, jackals are closer and could become black or golden stripe wolves. I agree @seword, but it should depend on where the wolf came from and not the color. Jackal dogs, which live in hotter climates should be the ones with fire protection (fire damage is divided by 2), normal wolf dogs give Marathon effect (1.5 speed boost but can sprint longer), and arctic wolves give Camouflage effect (mobs will not attack when you are still)

    Different textures for wolves too? Yes! 

    But not different sizes or spawn eggs. That’s too much of the good.

    I agree with this idea completely. I have been wanting different types of dogs on the game for so long. I think the dogs should have different traits e.g. puppies scare zombies and poodles are fast and a German Shepard might kill certain mobs faster than other dogs

    This would be great because the dogs right now are really boring

    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

    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.

    I’d say wolf in forests and husky for the snowy biomes.

    In my opinion, this isn't a good idea as it would make dogs too much like cats.

    And even more types: dalmatian, arctic wolf, sheperd, bichon, that police dog, danschund, and street dogs with random colour combinations, but only if you tame wolves in certain places. Or it would better be randomly.

    Especially with the new breeds of cats, new dogs would be great. I’d love to see a Pomeranian in Minecraft!
