Thanks for posting the pics. The top two pics are the pups mom. He came from our native reserve. We are a very well populated coyote area in the mountains in B.C canada. One of the guys that lives there stated the he believes a lot of their dogs are hybrids. We did not know this when we got puppy. We love him and are going to keep him regardless. Just curious. Lots of different vocalization's. Talks a lot. He is very pointy and leggy and skinny. Healthy been to the vet.and those ears they are huge!

Everyone here will tell you there's no possibility there's coyote in him. The truth is no one can know. Even for sure coyote hybrids can look very dog and there's not enough examples if any of proven lower generation hybrids to know what they would look like. He doesn't look it though so would just go with dog. There's obvious northern breed like husky or mal in there and they can be very vocal as well.

this is nupqu (pup) bonding with big adopted brother Sam. And his cuteness when he arrived three months ago.
Thanks for the input. I had a Siberian husky crossed with a border collie. Beautiful dog I still miss her.
I first thought he was mal/Shepard cross. But his fur is so corse compared to other dogs . But it nice to get opinions.i was actually hoping he was not a malamute cross because they get so big. He is taller than me right now on his hind legs.my husband said he was a miniature malamute lol. Uh huh. Anyway appreciate all the wisdom thanks

Not seeing any myself. He appears to be mostly gsd/husky or gsd/mal. Gsd pups have very large ears. Coyotes also don't get that tall, wolves on the other hand are, but you're boy definitely is not a wolfdog either. On the other forum where you posted, you even stated that the place you got him from said that the mother was a shepherd and that you just assumed he had coy in him by the reading you had done.

Pup looks like a Husky x Shepherd, female in pictures looks like a Shepherd mix.

Also, does the female actually belong to anyone? If so, and she is a dog, I would have hoped they'd have gotten her spayed if they were going to let her roam like that. Not a great idea either way to let a tame animal live outdoors 24/7 or be allowed to procreate with whatever is nearby.

Yes mom does belong to a family. Actually you will see of to the left of her is a puppy from last year. On the reserve most of the dogs roam free which is why that friend of my husband said he figured most of the dogs there are hybrids. We did not get nupqu from him. Mom does get tied occasionaly. But rarely do dogs out there get let indoors. Partily I think to help keep predators away from the area. I don't know for sure.our boy is definitely fixed. That's all I can say about that.

Yes I did say mom was a Shepard cross. Just wanted to get a consensus and go with the majority of as many people I could find that actually know what they are talking about. I also thought mal/German shep cross when we first got him when he was a little ball of fluff. I previously had a collie Siberian husky mix (best family dog ever) and she was radically so different from him looks and personality. I am not familiar with shepards so when he started sprouting up quickly and not gaining weight I was a little confused about what he was. After being told by several people around here he looked coyotish ( is that a word?) we were worried he might get mistaken and shot. We have a active hunting population around here. We also have a very large coyote population. We hear them a lot at night. we are not in town And I was starting to second guess myself. We have lots of wildlife around here we have herds of deer going by our home every night, we have also found bear and cougar prints close by.so I now feel confidant saying he is not a hybrid and we don't need to worry about his safety from being shot. So Thankyou for all the agreement. It is amazing how many people jump to conclusions about things. I had never even heard of Coydogs before we started being told he was one. So thanks I feel much better about his safety now.

Well people can be stupid. Just make sure he has a big bright collar on in case he's ever not with you when out.

All these first twelve dogs were shot in the belief they were wolves or coyotes: http://s12.postimg.org/vgkq54vzf/Shot.jpg

It's really tragic how bad people are at telling one animal from another, especially when they have the power of life and death in their hands.

In most cases, the dogs were around houses, in some, even right by the owner and other dogs on a walk.
My main interest is in parrots, dogs, toothed whales and snakes.
Future animals I want to have when we have land are camels, wolfdogs/wolves, coyotes or jackals, striped hyena or aardwolf. Also poultry, rabbits water buffalo and/or yak for livestock.

(Am I the only one thinking the last dog looks like a wolfdog?)

For the love of... people even confuse people with deer. O.o Did he have antlers? (To be fair, I guess they could have confused him with a female deer. Almost no difference between that and a human, I mean, neither of them have antlers...)
