fdd f: Canine Wolf or Wolfdog vs Dog Breed?
There are a lot of breeds, like English Mastiff, Bullmastiff, Dogo Argentino, American Bulldog that can kill a wolf, but it's important which of them is taller. I think wolfs are no bigger than German Shepherds that is 24 - 26 inches and 75 - 140 pounds. But I know that English Mastiffs, Irish Wolfhounds, and Great Danes have to be taller. I know that the tallest is Irish Wolfhound then Borzoi and then Great Dane and English Mastiff. HOW TALL DOES A MATURE GREY WOLF GET?

Also, Irish wolfhounds were bred to kill wolfs, actually, they made a wolf species go extinct.

In Europe, people use dogs specially designed for stock protection against wolves. They work in packs and they don't fight against wolfs as single dogs. Wolf is a predator who kills dogs for food as well.

Anytype of tall bulldog mix, mastiff/mastiff mix, great dane, pitbull can kill a wolf. They were used for these reasons in the past while herding animals and some were used for hunting bears and yes even lions which can kill a wolf easily. However, they must be fit dogs who are well exercised at least gets an hour a day walking, or else it just a poor weak dog.
There is a reason wolves hunt in a pack and that's because they are not powerful animals and need backup so I don't know why people keep saying wolves are strong and can kill such dogs. There is proof if you look really deep in these dogs' history. Wolves attack in a pack and will run away if alone.
Mastiffs were even used in wars when people used swords to fight alongside knights. Dogs and wolfs don't get alone for some reason and are each other's worst enemy so the idea that dogs come from wolves is just a theory that doesn't have concrete evidence to prove it. Just cause an animal looks like another shouldn't mean they evolve from another. Apparently, two similar-looking species couldn't be created at the same time, or it's hard to believe so.

a lot of people think pit bulls and other dogs can kill a wolf. remember one thing all those dogs have to be trained to kill a wolf. wolves don't have to because wolves are always HUNTING AND KILLING
a lot of animals wolves know naturally how to kill a house dog has to be trained to kill one more thing when wolves are done with one meal they start hunting for the next meal so naturally wolves
are the DOMINATE SPECIES OF DOG. If you don't like what I said you can kiss my fucking ass
because I know what I said is true peace out

Sounds like you have done your research on dog breeds. You can find the info on the wolf the same way. ;)

I’ve seen some of these European dog fights in Germany where I’ve witnessed Presa Canario defeat Kangal, Caucasian Ovcharka and CAO. It does indeed depend on the individual dogs. Here in America it’s been proven that wolves are no match for cougar one on one. Yet Dogo Argentino have been documented killing cougar one on one. All I’m saying is wolves and necessarily the baddest canines on the planet if the whole pack isn’t present.
Also, the wolf my Presa killed is bigger than 50 kg. Somewhere between 140-150 lbs. Very fit animal and looked very healthy upon prior observations. My neighbor had pics of it and some of its pack members he'd taken last year. They are probably the only predators in this area for many many miles, so food was plentiful. He just ran into a bigger, badder dog. It happens. And my dog ain't even trained for fighting. Instinct just kicked in.
