Wolf and Other Wild Dogs Facts and Coloring Pages

Updated on April 11, 2014

Wild Dog Coloring Pages (includes wolves, foxes, and more)

On this page you will find a wonderful collection of wolf coloring pages, fox coloring pages and other wild dogs, such as coyotes, dingoes, and fennec foxes as well as some of my own linearts. I am also including some information about these different wild dogs so you can learn a little about them and compare them.

Dogs were domesticated several thousands years ago, but there are still many species of dog living in the wild, ranging from the tiny fennec fox to the large gray wolf.

Which one is your favorite?

The gray wolf was once widespread across Asia, Europe, and North America but is now listed as vulnerable due to habitat destruction and human fear. The gray wolf hunts in packs which enables it to take down large prey, such as moose, musk oxen, and caribou.

The wolf's coat can range in color from almost pure white to cream, tan, gray, brown, or even black.

Length: 39 - 60 inches

Weight: 35 - 130 lbs

It seems that many of the fictional wolves in fairytales and fables are portrayed as the antagonist (the baddies) eg the wolf in sheep's clothing, Little Red Riding Hood, and the three little pigs.

Foxes are canids which are active both day and night and live in very diverse environments, from the Arctic tundra to deserts to suburbia. They hunt by stalking their prey, but they are not fussy eaters - their diet includes rabbits, hares, birds, mice, birds, frogs, beetles, worms, eggs, fruit, refuse, and any dead creature they come across.

There are several types of foxes, including red foxes, gray foxes, Arctic foxes, and swift foxes. The color of their coats ranges from rusty red to orange to gray to gray brown to white (Arctic fox)

Length: 23 - 35 inches

Weight: 6½ - 24 lbs

The fennec fox is the smallest fox. It is nocturnal and lives in the Sahara Desert. It has large ears which help to radiate the heat, and fur on the soles of its feet to protect them from the hot sand. It eats rodents, insects, birds, lizards, termites, eggs, fruit, and seeds. The large ears help it to be able to locate food even if it is underground.

The fennec fox has golden or cream colored fur with a black-tipped tail.

Length: 9½ -16 inches

Weight: 2¼ - 3¼ lbs

Dingo

The dingo's coat can range in color from light sandy to to a deep red-ginger. It has white patches on its muzzle, chest, belly, feet, and sometimes on the tip of its tail.

Length: 28 - 43 inches

Weight: 20 - 47 lbs

The African wild dog live in large packs of up to 30 dogs. They cooperate in their hunting and so are able to bring down even large animals, such as wildebeests, zebras, and impalas.

The coat of the African wild dog is like a paint pallet with swirls, spots, and patches of black, gray, white, and yellow. The muzzle is usually black and the tail tip, white.

Length: 30 - 43 inches

Weight: 37 - 79 lbs
