I drew a sketch of the wolf to get the bone structure for the wire armature, which I think is the easier part. Next I had to decide how I was going to build up the body. What medium would I use? 

After much thought, I chose to needle felt the body to the armature using black wool. I've only needle felted a couple of times. Here's a look at my attempt to Needle Felt a black wolf.

After several layers of Needle Felting black wool:  There is still much work to be done, but it's a start.
