First Appearance

Update 0.9.0

Wolves are Neutral Mobs that were added in Update 0.9.0.

Spawning

Wild Wolves spawn in Taiga and Forest Biomes. Tamed Wolves do not spawn naturally.

Behavior

Wild

They wander aimlessly, but will sometimes coordinate and kill Sheep, Skeletons, and Rabbits. When doing so, they will gain the appearance of aggressive Wolves. They run away from Llamas.

Aggressive

Wild Wolves will turn hostile towards the Player if they, or nearby Wolves, are attacked. Aggressive Wolves have red eyes and their fur has a rumpled appearance. Their tail is also raised higher than Wild Wolves.

Tamed

When a Wild Wolf is given one or more Bones, it will become a Tamed Wolf. Tamed Wolves follow the Player around the world, and teleport towards him/her if they are too far. They shake themselves dry after exiting any body of Water, and can be made to sit and stand by pressing the Sit or the Stand button respectively. Tamed Wolves will chase and kill Skeletons without provocation.

Tamed Wolves will attempt to attack the Player if he/she shoots himself/herself with a Bow.

Wolves can be healed by tapping and holding them with any type of meat or any type of Fish. Their collars can be dyed by pressing them with any Dye, but by default, the collar is red.

Breeding

120px-Little Puppy

A Puppy

Tamed Wolves can be Bred using any type of meat if their Health is fully restored, including Rotten Flesh, which will not poison them. When bred, a tamed puppy spawns.

Wolves cannot be bred until they are tamed.

Combat

Wild Wolves do not have a large amount of health, hence they can easily be killed using a Sword. However, if there are more Wolves nearby, they will gang up on the Player, making combat difficult.
