The following breeds indicate whether or not a user can request a joining application with that correct breed or subspecies. There is no specific requirement, I only ask if you could choose one of the following with a * next to them! The star indicates that you are allowed to use that breed on here!


The Arabian wolf is a small, desert-adapted wolf that stands at around 26 inches shoulder height and weighs an average of 40 pounds. Their ears are proportionally larger in relation to body size when compared to other species, an adaptation needed to disperse body heat. Arabian wolves do not usually live in large packs, and instead hunt in pairs or in groups of about three to four animals. This subspecies is unusual, as it is not known to howl. Arabian wolves have short, thin fur in summer, though the hair on their back remains long even in summer. It is thought that this is an adaptation against solar radiation. The winter coat is long, though not as long as northern subspecies. The Arabian wolf possesses no sweat glands; like other canines, they control body temperature by rapid panting which causes evaporation from the lungs.


Arctic wolves are smaller than grey wolves, They also have smaller ears and shorter muzzles to retain body heat.
Length: about 1-1.8m, including tail.
Weight: 45-70kg


It is a large subspecies, with adult males measuring 118-137 cm (46-54 in) in body length, and females 112-136 cm (44-54 in). Although often written to be larger than C. l. lupus, this is untrue, as heavier members of the latter subspecies have been recorded. Average weight is 40-49 kg (88-108 lb) for males and 36.6-41 kg (81-90 lbs) for females.


The gray wolf or grey wolf (Canis lupus) also known as the timber wolf,or western wolf, is a canid native to the wilderness and remote areas of North America . It is the largest extant member of its family, with males averaging 43–45 kg (95–99 lb), and females 36–38.5 kg (79–85 lb). Like the red wolf  it is distinguished from other species by its larger size and less pointed features, particularly on the ears and muzzle. Its winter fur is long and bushy, and predominantly a mottled gray in color, although nearly pure white, red, or brown to black also occur.
26-32 inches at the shoulder
Length: 4.5-6.5 feet from nose to tail-tip
Weight: 55-130 lbs; Males are typically heavier and taller than the females.


The Mexican gray wolf is a subspecies of the gray wolf. Commonly referred to as "El lobo," this wolf is gray with light brown fur on its back. Its long legs and sleek body enable it to run fast.
Mexican wolves mostly eat ungulates (large hoofed mammals) like elk, white-tailed deer, and mule deer. They are also known to eat smaller mammals like javelinas, rabbits, ground squirrels and mice.

Height: 26-32 inches at the shoulder.
Length: 4.5-5.5 feet from nose to tip of tail.
Weight: 60-80 lbs; Males are typically heavier and taller than the females.


The fur of the Tibetan wolf is fulvous, on the back longer, rigid and intermixed with black and grey hairs. Its throat, chest, belly and inside of the legs is pure white, its head pale grey-brown, and the forehead grizzled with short black and grey hairs. Its skull is very like the Eurasian wolf, but the legs are shorter
Occasionally, a dark stripe of varying intensity may be present on the forelegs. The ears are drabby grey or rich ocherous. The crown and muzzle are closely tinted with black speckles, which extend below the eye on to the upper cheeks and ears, isolating a white spot. The chin is varies from blackish to almost white. The contour hairs of the winter fur measure 100–120 mm (3.9–4.7 in) on the shoulders, 70–80 mm (2.8–3.1 in) on the back and 40–60 mm (1.6–2.4 in) on the flanks.It is a smallish subspecies that rarely exceeds 45 kg (99 lb)


The Eurasian wolf, also known as the common wolf or Middle Russian forest wolf, is a subspecies of grey wolf native to Europe and the forest and steppe zones of the former Soviet Union. It is the largest of Old World grey wolves, averaging 39 kg (86 lb) in Europe,[7] however, exceptionally large individuals have weighed between 69–80 kg (152–176 lb), though this varies according to region.[3][8] Its fur is relatively short and coarse,[2] and is generally of a tawny colour, with white on the throat that barely extends to the cheeks.


It is of average dimensions, weighing 35–40 kg (77–88 lbs), thus being somewhat smaller than the Eurasian wolf and its fur is sparser, coarser and shorter. The flanks are light grey, and the back is rusty grey or brownish with a strong admixture of black hairs. The guard hairs on the withers usually does not exceed 70–75 mm. The fur of steppe wolves in Middle Asia and Kazakhstan tends to have more reddish tones. The tail is poorly furred. The skull is 224–272 mm long and 128–152 mm wide


The Iberian wolf differs from the more common Eurasian wolf with its slighter frame, white marks on the upper lips, the dark marks on the tail and a pair of dark marks in its front legs that give it its subspecies name, signatus ("marked").Males can weigh up to 40 kilograms, with females usually weighing between 20 and 30 kg.
White stripes on the snouts and black marks on the front legs are distinguishing markings of the subspecies.


The red wolf is a smaller and a more slender cousin of the gray wolf. It is gray-black, with a reddish cast that gives it the color for which it is named. Red wolves are primarily nocturnal (active at night), and communicate by scent marking, vocalizations (including howling), facial expressions and body postures.
Height: About 26 inches at shoulders.
Length: 4.5-5.5 feet long (including the tail).
Weight: 50-80 lbs.


This subspecies has height of 85 cm (33.5 in) and weigh between 21 and 55 kg (46.3 - 121.3 lb), males average 43 kg (94.8 lb) and females 37 kg (81.6 lb). Male wolves average 50.3 kg (111 lb) and females 44 kg (97 lb), in Denali National Park and Preserve male wolves average 47.6 kg (105 lb). The most common color for this subspecies is tawny grey or tan, but can also range from white to black.
