As I see it there are a lot more differences in their behavior than in their physical appearance.
I've had the oportunity of breeding dogs, and wolf-dogs.

A dog, when the wildest and fiercest of dogs, has a far more developed social intelligence when compared to a wolf, at the expense of having weaker survival instincts. You will always be able to socialize with your dog, if it is a dog.

A wolf, being the mildest and gentlest of the wolves, barely has any social abilities (or it's social intelligence is not compatible with that of the human being).
Having a wolf-dog (not a wolfhound, which is a dog) has been one of the most exhausting and least rewarding experiences that I've had with an animal. They sleep a lot, eat a lot, require high amounts of discipline and time (you can't trust your family, specially kids to them).
I assume that a pure wolf would be a non-pet animal at all.
