Hi GUIZE!

Boy Howdy is this a cold winter. Not like my South American habitat. But I do enjoy some hot coco and a nap by the fire. And then huddle under your bed to play "GOT YOUR LEG" ...it's all in good fun...BTW, send more goats.

I think if it was a coyote it would have gone ballistic at this point...

Coyote with mange.
Attention Idiots: stop bringing wild animals into your house because they look cold to you.

If it was a pup (even an older one) and cold and hungry enough, not necessarily.  Some get abandoned or their mothers get chomped and they still don't know what to do, and they're still in dependent mode due to their age.  Those can socialize quite nicely - usually how you get the "technically wild animal but in temperament no not really"-type pets and livestock.  No guarantees of course, it's still wild at that point, but they tend to respond to attempts at care/etc. because they don't really know how to do for themselves, and they know they're small and vulnerable compared to what's running around out there

Coyote or dog? Why not both?
/they can interbreed
//eastern 'yotes tend to be 10% dog as it is. And a quarter wolf.

Coyote with a bad case of mange or a coywolf with a bad case of mange. To give some context, This was a case of a fox with a bad case of mange from the same area.

Teddy Brosevelt: A coyote is a dog 🤔


No, a Dog is a Wolf: Canis lupus familiaris
A Coyote is Canis latrans.

Though they are all in the dog genus.

Too bad they couldn't put a picture of it in the article.

/video not working for me.
//don't need a video of newscasters, need a still picture of the animal.

Not specifically.

It's probably a coydog.

They are...different.  I guess you would say they can react closer to a raccoon.  Lose all fear of humans and dogs but still a wild animal.  The ones I've seen (not too many) in rescues always seemed to have something "off", even with the dogs.  They would get along OK with the pack but never seemed to socially be a part of it.  They also were almost impossible to house train.  I've never seen a case with a coyote raised just with humans so that could be different.

Wolves when raised from young seem to be more likely to be able to bond with dogs and humans they live with as "funny looking members of their pack."  Even the "creepy" ones.

That's what I want in a cryptid: a Capybara in public and Chupacabra in the sack.

Could be both.. Coyote-dog hybrids aren't unheard of.

Apparently they do best when there are dogs around, they kinda show them the ropes.  They need something similar to pattern on, they do to a degree on humans but obviously we're not quite close enough to really fill the gap
