The Sand Wolf is an enemy found on Bikanel in Final Fantasy X. It is quite common and should pose little threat to the party.
Unless severely underleveled, one hit from Tidus will defeat it. Its attack can cause Sleep or Silence ailments, but these effects will only last three turns. It will drop Al Bhed Potions for restoring HP without Yuna in the party.
Sand Wolves drop armor with Sleep Ward and Silence Ward, as well as Magic Defense +5%. They also drop weapons with any of the elemental strikes and Strength or Magic +3%.
