Grey wolves can be pretty much any color a dog can be. Many are grey, hence the name, but there can also be white, black, brown, and red furred wolves, along with mixed colored wolves. I think the main thing is that, especially in animated form, wolves are very often depicted as grey, and foxes are almost always orange with with the white end to their tail. I can understand the confusion a tiny bit, but as wandering-dreamer pointed out, they explicitly tell us Horo is a wolf in the first episode, and I think a count of the times ookami is said in the series would be pretty high, so no one should really get confused.
