These papers discuss sizes and types of dog; one at least includes wolf.

Subject: [ZOOARCH] wolf versus dog osteometrics
Does anyone know of raw measurements (after Von den Driesch 1976) that have been published for wolves and wolf-sized dogs? I am interested in cranial and post cranial measurements.
Unfortunately, the repositories near me (within time and budget) do not have wolves or even a useful dog sample. The published data that I have found has only reported measurements as ratios with other measurements or logs. I am hoping to find ranges or means.
