    Because people are stupid and ignorant.

    Coydogs are believed to be prime harassers of livestock. They have the quick mind of a coyote and the boldness of a dog. I've heard that on rancher forums. It doesn't really make sense... If a Coydog was born to a she coyote out in the woods, they would be just as skittish as pure coyote pups. The momma would have taught them to be afraid of humans. If a Coydog was born to a bitch on someone's property and they let the puppies go... Then you've a problem with your neighbor and his bitch. Wild Coydogs are supposedly bigger and nastier than actual coyotes.

    There is no proof that the animals shown in those images are actually coydogs. They could just be bigger, bolder actual coyotes. Coyotes are quite misunderstood as a species and there is a lot of controversy surrounding them.

    Most of the dogs shown in the images looked like collies, to be honest. None looked like coyotes or even coydogs. (The pics on this link are pretty graphic) http://www.coyoteclub.org/coydogs.html

    If you do a quick google search there are also photos of coyotes being labeled coydogs. You are correct. Most of them are just dogs or coyotes. Dogs can harm livestock too which some people forget. Suddenly, it has to be something exotic and crazy to be noming on your sheep. Nope. Just a dog. Or just a coyote.

    So, that being said, not a Coydog but sure is cute!

    that "coydog" has liver pigment... probably not a coydog. if it is it isn't an f1 coydog.

    Nope. :| It's a Coydog. Mom is a coyote husky mix. Dad is a red (lighter red? Almost tan) and white border collie. This is the only Coydog breeder that I know that has dependable coyote-y pups. The exotics forum I am on highly recommends her.

    Website: http://www.mindstorm.ca/coydog/ Mom and dad photos available.

    Ooh okay so it's an F2 coydog... I figured you were posting it as an F1. My bad! I've seen that site before actually, I really want one someday.

    edit: I just saw that she requires the pup to be on raw for its life... Kind of a head scratcher there.

    Lol. I should have clarified, clarified. My OP was a bit confusing. :P I don't know of any other breeders.

    It's pretty neat to see one full grown, they sure are beautiful.

    I want a coydog now! I'll more than likely never actually get one but I just love that wild look that they have...Same goes for wolf hybrids

    Lol. Coydogs are fun but man, they are a little more to handle than your average dog. I'm sure most members here could manage one but they have high exercise and training requirements. Anyone who thinks they may want one should do some research! They also might not be legal to own in your area.

    I am seriously considering one in the future. I dunno about the movie but I want to get in contact with breeder soon so maybe I'll ask!

    ETA: The only downside to this breeds is that you must have a fenced in yard. My house now doesn't and can't have one but I don't expect to get a cd until I move to a more exotic friendly city.
