Considering their shape, and the lack of any forelegs, makes them look somewhat more sinister or evil than their dragon counterpart.
Having four legs instead of two, dragons give me the impression that they have more control over their movements, rather than having to rely on their claws and wings; by keeping the wings as separate limbs, they can much easily and quickly fly or run not sure what dragons do exactly … gallop? Nonetheless, they too are awesome and I still cannot avoid relating or momentarily confusing one with the other.
Yes Tolkien specifically illustrated the dragon as having four, instead of two, legs and I would still prefer it if Peter Jackson retained the original design.
They still look cool and perform the job of chasing or aiding the characters well. In both stories, the dragons are also two-legged, giving them a seemingly more viscous and evil appearance than other similar creatures.
After being unhorsed at Rivendell, they acquire fell-beasts to aid them in their search for the One Ring. In addition, they often have some form of innate magic if intelligent.

Given that additional limbs expend more energy, a hypothetical six-limbed "dragon" would almost certainly be small.
