The dhole is about the size of a medium-sized dog, and males tend to be larger and heavier than females.

Male dholes tend to be larger and heavier than females. Females average 22-29 pounds, or 10-13 kilograms, while males normally weigh 33-44 pounds, or 15-20 kilograms.

The dhole is an average-sized canine, normally about the size of a German shepherd dog. They are often seen as surprisingly small, scaling at 30-50% the size of an average wolf.

They can grow up to 3 feet, almost 1 meter, in length and stand at about 20 inches, or 50 centimeters, at the shoulder. Their tails are often 15-18 inches, or 40-45 centimeters, long.
