I'm not really sure what the wolf is doing. The pose is very static and kinda looks like the wolf is floating upwards with wires. I can't really do much right now without redlining, but immediately I can point out that the neck is way too thin. It's too "flat". Wolves tend to have more a "puff" around their necks that goes around their heads and to their chests.
http://www.tranism.com/weblog/images/grey-wolf-snow.jpg The neck is also a bit too long. The head is off too, too rounded, flat on the edges, and the ears well I can't tell the position but they aren't rounded like a wolf's ears. From the snarly look, the ears should either be pinned back or as forward erect as possible. Pinned back is a sign of being the "submissive" (being on the defensive)  forward is the sign of being the dominant (the "attacker").
In this image (though blurry) you can see that the submissive defensive wolf has its ear spinned back while the aggressor has its ears forward. http://ae.imcode.com/en/images/wolf4-1.jpg

I'm not sure how to make the wolf less static.... Please explain more so so I can change it, instead of just saying that ;). That you for the critique, I do understand what you mean by the floating thing, it's supposed to be floating, and its paws supposed to fading and having ghost wisps. ( The woman is summoning it or something)

I fixed the neck (or tried to) but I still can not get it right!!

I think what they meant is that the overall stance isn't very...actiony. Although it seems you're going for almost a galloping/charging look with the legs, the lack of attack stance in the upper body clashes entirely and is more of an alert, happy posture. The expression suggests that too, it's more...domestic dog-like, not wolf-like.

Were you going for happy, or aggressive?

Here's aggressive-ish:



See how it's more hunched down?

Happier:

Like I said, when I get time I'll redline it so you can see what I mean better. Honestly, I think what you have is not a good pose for "summoning". It looks like the wolf is charging/jumping, but the pose looks "static" (i'll explain more later tonight when I have time). Even if you want to keep the pose aggressive, it's better to have the effect of gravity acting on the wolf. For example, the back should probably slope down more (as if she is pulling the wolf up and out of something) and the back legs should look more loose, the tail (though up and out is dominant and aggressive) should not come out as looking like a stick (see the beautiful photos Sedde provided you with :3 ) and while in the process of summoning might still be sloped down.
Again, I'll explain better later today when I have more time, although you did improve on the neck, so good job. (:
