THE X-FILES: "Alpha"
Mulder and Scully (David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson) investigate a series of murders perpetrated by a bloodthirsty dog of ancient Asian origin.

--From Adam on Spoilerville:

Synopsis for "Alpha":
Mulder and Scully must stop a deadly force in a nearby shipyard

--From AV on Spoierville:

<snip>

He read "Alpha" several months ago, and said it was kinda silly... but a cool X-File. The end was a bit of a cheat, but he linked everything building up to it! There were no serious violence with the dogs... he just noted that the camera should pan away at the killing. When I asked if it was a werewolf, he said that was all he was going to say.

--More from AV on Spoilerville:

(3/1/99) Here's a bit of info on the episode Alpha:
 Star Trek DS9 actor Andrew Robinson [Garak] will be playing a cryptozoologist on the upcoming ALPHA episode. I'm assuming it's that one as the character becomes a "wolfman".

(2/24/99) Episode 16 info from Angela:
              Episode 16--The Wild Dog episode also features wolves. We saw them waiting with their handlers.

--From Dana Foxee on Spoilerville:

Mulder and Scully visit a woman who is an expert on dogs. The plot is classic X-Files: as production assistant John Nesbitt puts it, “There’s kind of a killer dog that goes around and eats people.”

This vicious dog is more than just a dog - it is, in at least one sense, an alien presence or, possibly, the dark side of the human mind.

Also from "Haven," this one courtesy of DanaKat:
Ep#16 is currently titled "Alpha" Don't know much about it, except it was
filmed in San Pedro, and it deals with a wild dog, and a man getting into his
 car and finding the dog in it, and another man finding the dog chewing on a
severed human hand. Hmmm....yummy. Its directed by Peter Markle. I have a
 call sheet for it, when they were filming it last Wednesday, and most of the
stuff it calls for is for a wild dog, and "Stumpy-the right hand stump" (That's
seriously what it says on the call sheet.) and it all seems to take place in a
shipyard

(GA Article in THE OBSERVER:)
Anderson is filming an X Files episode, to be aired late in the series' sixth
 season, in which Scully and her partner, the intuitive, credulous Agent Mulder,
played by David Duchovny, visit a woman who is an expert on dogs. The plot
 is classic X Files: as production assistant John Nesbitt puts it, 'There's kind of
a killer dog that goes around and eats people.'
