No one characteristic will distinguish the dog-shifter (or part dog-shifter) from a regular domestic canine. In general, watch a dog who is usually smart or good looking. Size does not matter. Any size from English Mastiff to Chihuahua could be a shifter. Also note that a werewolf can masquerade as a common dog or wolfdog. 

If you have a dog-shifter, provide high quality reading material and don’t complain if your computer is on when you wake up in the morning.
