My sister had a miniature eskimo pair that she was going to breed when they got older. The female got loose and was bred by a coyote. She found homes for all the puppies, giving one to her in-laws and one to my aunt. I'm pretty sure they have all passed on now, seeing as this was nineteen or so years ago.
Anyway, my aunt named hers Saga (pronounced "say-ja"). She was white and somewhat fluffy (coat similar to an aussie's, actually), with a few big tan spots. She was definitely built like a coyote, though. Her personality was almost all coyote. Very shy, very bonded with my aunt (she tolerated my uncle and two cousins, but was attached to my aunt), would perch on things, distrustful of anyone she didn't see on an almost daily basis. She got along well enough with my aunt and uncle's other dog (a big newfoundland mix named Pepper), but again, preferred my aunt to anyone or anything else. She would slink like a coyote, too.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
