There are a lot of differences between dog and wolf. You may think that they look alike physically but they also have some differences in terms of appearance. The skull and the jaw of the wolf will be stronger as compared to that of a dog’s.

You will also see that there are some differences in terms of the ears of the wolf and the dog. The wolf will have ears that are pointed while the ears of dogs have evolved greatly depending on the dog’s breed.

For example, it will already be common for dogs to have ears that are floppy or are folded. The tail of the dog has also evolved from that of a wolf.

Wolves and Dogs have many similarities because of their looks. However, they also have many differences. Dogs have a rounder face and larger eyes than wolves, they have the same number of teeth, but the skull and jaw of the wolves are stronger.

The two middle toes of a wolf are longer than their side toe, and they have enormous feet compared to the dogs. Wolves grow faster than dogs. Wolves move in packs while the dogs can stay alone. Wolves are wild animals, while Dogs are domestic animals.

Wolves have a great sense of smell and are intelligent, while dogs are loyal to their owners. Generally, wolves are stronger than Dogs. Dogs bark while wolves’ howls. Female Dogs come to heat twice in a year while the female wolves come to heat once in a year.
