I believe the term is "inumimi", which is more for dog-people in general. I don't believe there is a specific, commonplace term for wolf-people.

That's fox and in stories they more transform. OP is looking for things like humans with the ears and tails.

EDIT: Took too long. >.<

Inuyasha is half dog demon. Don't think there's a specific term for it.

I suggest asking someone like animeyay who knows Japanese.

The specific term would be 狼耳 (ookami-mimi).
it's not as well-known as neko-mimi (cat ears) though, so you probably won't find much anyhow...
