Yup, very lucky. She was in the shelter for 7 weeks and a day away from being euthanized when I adopted her. I am truly shocked that the pound didn't know that she was a coyote pup considering they found her in the mountains. Below is a link to a video a rescue group made when they visited her in the pound. She was fluffier and fatter all around so that might have been her saving grace. Her muzzle was shorter and grew long only after I got her otherwise it would have been super easy to tell. However, if you look at the video below you can see that she was originally a wild coyote. She doesn't act this way anymore and is as calm as any dog around me but it's taken a lot of work. I am especially thankful to my australian cattle dog who has shown her that being friendly pays off. She has learned that people are generally good and even allows some that she knows at the dog park to pet her on occasion. The dog park that I go to has three wolves and a dingo so I am not the only owner of non dog canid there. She loves to play with the dingo too.
