This picture is not photoshopped, Wolves are large animals. The largest wolf subspecies in the world is Canis Lupus Occidentalis, also known as the Mackenzie Valley Wolf or as the Alaskan/Canadian Timberwolf. It typically stands about 32–34 inches at the shoulder and weighs between 110 and 175 pounds with reports of wolves as large as 235 pounds.

Its a powerfully built animal with evolution on it’s side helping it to develop thick long limbs for traversing through rough terrain such as deep snow or the cliffy edges of the Rocky Mountains. Its deep chest hosts large lungs, letting it breathe efficiently at higher altitudes and allowing it to exert huge amounts of stamina. This stamina enables the wolf to travel up to 70 miles in one day.

Its powerful neck is a very important adaptation; it has to be strong to support the wolf’s large head and is crucial for bringing down prey. The skull is 12 inches long and can support a much larger brain, and is armed with an impressive array of large canines and carnassial teeth which, and when coupled with huge jaw muscles, gives it an incredible bite force that is strong enough to break the bones of prey and even crack the femur of moose.

It is not uncommon for a pack of wolves to bring down a bison. The strength of these animals individually are above any domesticated dogs but in a pack, it’s downright destructive. So for those that call me talking about their breed can take out a wolf (wild animal) please rethink and use some common sense and discretion.

Note: a difference between a dog and a wolf when fighting is a dog will fight and walk away from the battle when done whereas a wolf will fight til the end and eat the dog.
