The Chinese character for Wolf 狼.

Chinese characters actually are little pictures, joined together, each part has a meaning.

The chinese character for wolf is quite evocative:

Is is composed of three radicals (parts) 
犭dog or beast
丶dot
艮 stillness

A wolf is a dog or creature that you see like a dot in the distance, in stillness.
