German Shepard and Coyote accident.

Postby Wolf67 » Fri Jul 22, 2011 3:55 pm

I had a neighbor who had a female German Shepard and when he left it alone in the yard for a while, A wild Coyote somehow managed to get in the yard and actually mated with the German Shepard. A few months later or so she gave birth to pups that were Coyote-German Shepard mix I find this interesting though the German Shepard's Coyote boyfriend I like to call him sometimes came by and watched over his mate and pups but he kept his distance. What a great Dad! lol. My neighbor was able to keep one of the Coydogs but he gave the rest away to some shelter I believe. Have any of you guys had a scenario like this or know of any people where their Dog mated with a Coyote or any other wild canine like a wild Wolf maybe?

Wow, that's pretty amazing. You'll have to tell us how the Coydog acts. I wish I could have seen it.

I have not personally experienced or heard of such a thing, but:

The wildlife refuge I work at has a coydog. She was confiscated as a pup from her owner because they're illegal as a pet in our state.
Shelters here put them to sleep immediately because they're considered wildlife. It's very sad.
She's such a sweetie. She's one of my favorite residents.

The new proposal for Utah's new law allows coydogs. :mrgreen: How does the one act that you work with, Sarajeku? I haven't heard much about them. I've worked with a coyote, but not a coydog?

A friend has an old coy-dog. They are usually bred for in captivity. Wild coyotes are more prone to eating dogs than mating with them but it could happen. Some young critters can get pretty desperate to mate.

She's very gentle and loves attention. She doesn't do well on a leash or we'd probably use her as an ambassador. She does have quite the prey drive though, and if a chicken or bird gets into her enclosure, she'll kill it. She doesn't get along with other dogs, coyotes or wolves. So she's alone in her enclosure.

I always wanted a pet coydog ever since I first head of them a couple of years back. I hear they're even more wild and unpredictable than wolfdogs though and that they are harder to take care of than even wolfdgs supposedly. Also, as far I know, they only happen in accidental breedings. I've never heard of a coydog breeder.

That could be because wolf dogs can be low, mid, to high content and most people who think they have wolfdogs have low/no, so they seem super easy. I don't know anybody who breeds coydogs, so if there ever was a breeding, it's going to be a first generation puppy and therefore have more coyote in it.

The coydog at wolf run is a first generation. She's half coyote. icon-smile

Songdogs used to breed them.

Most of the time coydogs really are just dogs. They do exist though, if you browse any trapping r taxidermy forum you will see many examples. If anyone says that their "coydog" is a great dog they have a dog and not a coydog. They are quirky, and more high strung and nervous then a wolfdog.

I've seen that site before. I always thought they were a sanctuary, not a breeder. I don't see anything on their site about the selling or breeding of their coydogs.

It was posted on a different forum along with some other links. All I did was google coydogs.
You could always e-mail them and ask.

I want one, but they seem harder to keep than even hc wolfdogs, so I'd just rather start out with a low, maybe mid-content coy. :roll:
