I left out the eeveeloutions that more resemble cats than wolves, but if you want to include all eeveeloutions, then that's okay. =P
Raikou is not a dog it is a cat it is a sabertoothed Tiger it the only one of the beasts that isn't a dog.
Reshiram is'nt really dog it's more dragon bird like thingy.
You guys are such nitpickers. >.>
Removed Raikou and Resh.
lucario
Actually, Will was right before.

Reshiram has a mix of looks. One of these mixes is a canine look with Reshiram's snout.
This is more canines because ninetails is a fox & so are zoura & zoroark. Mightyena & poochyena are hyenas mixed with wolves ( Mightyena really looks like a wolf)
Hyenas, Foxes, and wolves are all part of the dog family.
ok guys rioulu is kind of a dog cuz of his ears
WHERE IS LUCARIO IN THIS ANSWER!?
Entei, Raikou, Suicune - Called the Legendary Beasts, not Dogs, therefore, accepted they aren't dogs. Additionally, based on Chinese mythology, and are based on Guardian Lions.
Vulpix and Ninetails - Foxes, not Dogs. Particularly Kitsune.
Riolu and Lucario - Jackals, such as Anubis, while part of the same family as dogs, not strictly a dog.
Absol - Based on Bai Ze of Chinese Mythology. Described as a Mountain LION, not a dog.
@cryptic I would upvote that comment if I could.
you forgot Raikou
Furfrou is based on a dog as well.
@ollyhinge11: Raikou is based on a sabretooth tiger...

@StormBorn: Furfrou is 6th gen. He asked gen 1 to 5 specifically.
@cryptic Entei is a Dog lion hybred. Zorua & Zoroark are also Foxes because Zorro is Spanish for fox.
