What Are Coywolves?

Posted: November 4, 2015 in Articles

Apparently, in the northeast, there is a new breed of dog that is called a coywolf or Eastern coyote. This hybrid is about one fourth wolf, two thirds coyote, and the rest is from various domestic dogs. The amazing thing is that there are over a million of these coywolves. To me, they almost look like a German shepherd even though no one else in my family agrees with me.

Anyway, I didn’t know that natural hybrids happened, but I guess that’s how different breeds of dogs started. These animals actually have their own unique call, and they have variable fur color which is very nice.

Since there are over a million of these creatures in the northeast, we can be thankful that they don’t seem to have eaten any humans. They eat garden produce and small mammals 🙂

These are really beautiful animals, so if you’ve never seen one, you may want to take a look!

    I haven’t heard of coy wolves but for a few years now I’ve been seeing packs of animals that look just like these pictures. Twice I’ve had close encounters with single ones. I’m familiar with coyotes so I knew they weren’t them. Also, they aren’t dogs.. You definitely get that sense, especially up close. Interesting.
