    Dog? Coyote? Or Coydog?

    My trapping has been slow this year. A bunch of coons but no predators. Two days ago this critter was under my bird feeders. I feed the deer all winter but for the last few days there have been none of my "pets" on the camera. Just more coons and this! I tripped my traps last week while I was out of town but will reset them tomorrow!

    I need opinions on this guy. Tail and ears are coyote, muzzle is a little short. Color is not like anything I have seen before. What do you think?

    Looks like a feral dog to me

    I think it is just a dog. A healthy one at that. If you can find its tracks take a picture of them and compare them to a coyote.

    I think coydog, from those pictures. The short snout as you mentioned, and the coat texture, especially around the neck. Could just be a thick winter coat, but it just doesn't look "course" enough for coyotes as seen around here.

    I neglected to look for your location. But it's a nice coat whatever it is. I'm curious as to what others think.

    Domestic dog, a beefy built one. My guess he’s figured out where the free meals are.

    I think its a domestic dog...the coat is way to nice to be a wild one.

    A very pretty dog in good condition. Probably somebody's pet off of the reservation.

    It's possible it could be a wolf hybrid someone dumped or that got away from its owner. They're not an easy breed to keep!
