Creeper Avoidance:
Wolves will now run away from creepers for their own safety.

Respawning Wolves:
Like ocelots, wolves will spawn sporadically in Taiga and Forest biomes. This means they won’t stick around if you wander off so be sure to bring bones with you if you’re looking for wolves!

Wolves will now also gobble down fish and gain the max amount of health whether their meat is cooked or raw. In addition, they will no longer wander around while begging, so you don’t have to chase them down while trying to feed them.

Attack Pausing/Canceling
Crouching with Shift will make any wolves currently attacking a creature stand still and stop attacking. Holding down Shift for around 5 seconds will cancel their attack entirely, so they don’t slaughter your flock of sheep because you accidentally punched them. Wolves will also lose interest in a target if you’re too far away from it when they teleport to you.

Peace of Mining
Wolves will no longer wander around and bump into you when you’re mining or on a ladder. They will now wait until you are finished or are attacked.

Evil Detecting Dogs
Though they won’t attack Creepers, wolves will now growl to alert you if one is nearby.

Miscellaneous Improvements
Smarter teleportation, fire avoidance, more responsive interactions, and many other various bug fixes and tweaks have been made to improve wolves.
