does fox counted as wolf?
Dog is also different from wolf, so I thought it was better to include all mons from Canidae family. Canidae means dog-like.
Isn't the Patrat line some kind of rodent-like creatures? I may be wrong, but I firmly believe they are.
Yes I thought so... thanks.
but the asker is asking for dog/wolf, is fox counted?
Umm, you put Shaymin in, but Shaymin's a hedgehog. Also, the 'Chimera' that Silvally is, is not a dog breed. It's a type of genetic hodgepodge made with different traits.
Yh Hedgehog wasn't a dog...

Also mb, I was confused between Chimera and Chihuahua...
