Coydog or Dogote? Have or Had one?

Hi all!
Have you ever had a Coyote mix? Two years ago I was driving down our rural Hwy. And found 9 female puppies hiding in the leaves near the side of the road. They were around 4 weeks. I searched around the woods and couldn't find the mother but the stench of death was overpowering. I took them in to the Ranger station and had them checked and they were 99.9% sure they were a coyote mix.
So here is Lola! She is one of the best dogs I've ever had. Catlike, quiet, perfect dog to have on the trails, she follows us quietly perching on ledges and hides behind trees when we come up on people. She is an incredible hunter, so far she's brought me squirles, chipmunks, barn rats, and has eliminated our yard of moles She is unlike any other, she "dens" up in the closet, under the bed, and is always laying around like a cat! She is very lean and long legged, I wish I could get a better picture of her but she's always curled up or lounging. VERY easy to train, she never messed in the house, very sensitive with a mind of her own. Sometimes she'll slink away instead of come, her eyes adverted heading to a perch in the sun instead.:roll: She is terribly shy of new people and often "perches" on a table or one of our yard rocks keeping an eye on things. I keep a close watch on her as I don't 1,000% trust her, she's never put a step wrong but she's not exactly like my Aussie!

Have any of you had one? We love ours to death!






There are no motivators for her, I've waived doritoes in her face to come, but if she doesn't want to get up she won't.
In the third picture she's ignoring me, I've had to drag her away from the fireplace just to get her to go to the bathroom!
Chevy on the other hand is a by your side, tried and true, Aussie.

Cool dog. She certainly looks a little like a coyote and from what you say she really acts like one too.

Thanks Kevin!
She does, she's also never barked. Only a weird air like gruff and I've heard her howl when I've left her penned up when riding! Spooky.

Thanks guys!
I'll try and post some more soon Kait! Right now she's denned up in the bathroom... Funny girl likes small spaces to sleep in. When she was a puppy she slept under the bed until she got too big to get out. I had to lift the side two or three times a day! She has been one of the most interesting dogs I've ever had to train. Super sensitive and submissive after a ton of work. But this dog worships the ground I walk on, sleeps by my seat on the couch... I was watching The River the other day and the part with the falling dolls made me gasp. She jumped up growling and ran to my side to protect me. My other two dogs didn't even flick an ear. I dig her.

Have you had her tested? Are you sure that she isn't ALL coyote?

LOL! No I didn't have her tested but I did take her to the game warden at the ranger station and he and my vet are 99% sure she is part coyote. The pups displayed a mixed bag of traits. Some were darker than others. A lot of mix puppies with coyote in them will either be black/grey or the lighter reddish tan. She was darker than the rest with some red mixed in that faded into the lighter adult color of coyote seen around here. We were driving down the road the other day and saw a VERY large coyote that looked almost identical to her, his tail was just a tad bushier or else we would have thought it was Lola. I've never seen a dog hide like she does. I mean she DISAPPEARS when we come up on people out on the trails. When family comes over she slinks around and is just now getting slightly used to some of them, but she won't let them touch her. The vet is wary of her. She hides under my chair in the waiting room until we go back. He makes me keep her on the ground to keep her calm and I am asked to hold her head when he gives her shots etc... He doesn't ask that of my Aussie.

Shots of the puppies! They were so cute, shy at first took a while to warm up to puppy chow and I had to soak it they were so young. Found some great homes for them with outdoorsy friends of friends. Some were more coyote looking than others, Lola was the thicker nosed of the bunch. She is the one on the far right in the picture where they are laying down.
