Any shy, skittish, nervous dog can act a lot like a wolf - and any hand-raised, well-socialized wolf may act like a dog. They really vary more in intensity than in actual behaviors - otherwise, you could say that wolves and dogs speak the same language; they just have different accents.
There really isn't a single thing wolves do that a normal dog can't. Some display more or fewer wolfy behaviors, such as huskies and malamutes and similar breeds acting more "wolfy" compared to virtually any other kind of dog; but they don't need to be mixed with a wolf to do that. They still howl, they're still destructive escape artists, they're still high-energy and free spirited.
As for appearance, that is actually far easier to decipher! If you have a trained eye, you could never mistake a dog with little or no wolf content, for a dog who truly is around half wolf or mid to high content.
Not that normal dogs can't have wolf traits too - the trick is determining what "wolf traits" truly are, and then adding them up. The more wolf traits, the more wolf content.
Here are just a few - keep in mind these are wolf traits (or true high content wolfdog traits); lower content animals (and some mid contents) definitely can deviate from any or all of these.
Wolves have very intense eyes - they are usually light colors such as yellow or gold, amber or orange, light brown, even greenish gray. They are never blue.
The eyeliner, nose and lips and paw pads are solid black, never any pink or brown.
The ears are smaller, thick like shoe leather, rounded (never pointy), and have a lot of insulating fur inside - you will never see much or any pink "ear leather" inside the ear, regardless of what time of year it is.
Their skull shape is very flat and aerodynamic; they have little or no "stop" where the muzzle connects to the forehead is very flat and not pronounced, similar to a collie.
They have proportionately large heads, and their teeth are much bigger than most dogs of comparable size - especially the canines (used for grabbing prey) and back molars (used for crushing bone).
Contrary to popular belief, they are very lean and lanky - never beefy or muscular. They are NOT especially giant - it's rare to find even a big male over 120 pounds, with 140 being one of the largest proven records (with a lot of exaggerated claims and even trickery such as hunters stuffing a wolf's carcass with rocks to make it seem far heavier).
One of the reasons they look so big is that they have VERY long legs, and big paws with long toes. Their nails are black, never white or pink. Even white arctic wolves have tan nails.
They are never quite one solid color - they may be grizzled shades of gray and brown, but "black" wolves actually have hints of brown or silver because they eventually turn white - and "white" wolves are never pure white, they may be a creamy color and will often have black-tipped guard hairs on their shoulder blade area.
They are never born pure white - even arctics are born dark gray and turn white as they mature.
They will also never be born with white markings or face masks. Their markings are always well-blended.
They have a marking called the "V cape" on their backs, and a spot on the top of their tails near the rump which actually marks a scent gland in the base of the tail.
Their tails are black tipped (except in whites), never white tipped.
Their tails never curl.
Their coats are thick and coarse for weather resistance, never soft or whispy. Even in the short summer coats it is rough, never sleek or smooth.
There are more but that's all I can think of off the top of my head.

Wolves are very narrow-chested, to the point their elbows almost touch.
They are also cow-hocked, so their ankles are close together too, with their rear paws farther apart, pointed outward away from their bodies.
When they move, they tend to keep their heads held low, level with their bodies with a kind of "stalking" gait.
They do something called single-tracking, meaning they actually step into their own footprints and leave two sets of pawprints, not four; and they walk in-line, so the pawprints are in a straight line rather than widely spaced apart.
