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
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.” — William Pitt (the Younger), Speech in the House of Commons, November 18, 1783
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.
The only stupid question...is the unasked one.

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