Stray dogs would not be a replacement for tamed wolves, and would not have the same stats as tamed wolves. Dogs would have 6 hearts of health while untamed, and 12 hearts of health when tamed.
Taming a stray dog would be similar to taming a stray cat, except stray dogs would need to be fed meat (not bones or fish) to be tamed.
Stray dogs would spawn in abandoned villages, in groups of 1-3. Instead of having default skins like the stray cats in Minecraft, stray dogs would have randomly generated looks. The nose color, dog size, coat color, coat length, and eye color would all be randomly generated. That way people won't be offended that specific dog breeds aren't in the game.
Dogs, when tamed, can perform tasks similar to tamed wolves but not identically. (They herd livestock towards the player without attacking the animals. They growl when mobs are near-by and run when attacked instead of attacking back)
