Thread: Heeler Coyote?

  1. #1

    Heeler Coyote?

    I just adopted a red heeler from Nevada. She was found as a pup and is now 10 months old. VERY shy, afraid of people. The foster parent suspected she's an offspring of a red heeler and coyote. She's got the long legs, gait and very thin. She does "move" like a coyote... What are the chances she is? Is there anyway to know if she is. She also has what looks like eye liner around her eyes which I've never seen on a heeler. My cat's in another room till I know I can trust her. . .

    She could just be from a really shy mother. I have a feral dog that had 4 pups last year on the street. We used the pups to catch the mom and even though we've had the pups since they were 2 weeks old, a couple of them were very shy and skiddish in new situations and around a lot of strange people. At home they are very outgoing with us, but trying to get them adopted out has been a challenge. We still have one a year later. He opens up a lot when we have him at adoptions and he can play with another dog. These kinds of dogs usually bond best with one or two people at a time. You just need to give this pup time and patience and she'll come around. Try to spend some time with her on her level i.e. you on the floor with treats.

    It's quite possible.. are coyotes common in your area?

    I met a woman with a coyote dog once. They're fairly common here.s

    Ginger

    I've named her Ginger. She's mine no matter and has already improved drastically. She adores my blue heeler Chili. Ginger is 10 months old. found as a pup, in the pound, then a foster home which she escaped from, stray for a while, they caught her again when a woman called saying she had been feeding a red heeler but couldn't catch her. She then went to another foster home with 9 others. She now plays with my other heeler trys not to run when ever I walk into the room. The way I get her to come to me is to get on the ground and beg. She comes to me about 50 percent of the time now. She absolutely adorable. I found her and Chili on my bed after I got out of the shower. I think they're going to get along fine. She crawled on the ground to Chili, rolled over, wimpered and licked her chin until Chili started to lick her back. Now she follows her everywhere licking Chili's chin.

    awww my gosh!! she is so cute! how awesome of you to take Ginger in and rescue her! Chili is also a doll!!

    I am not totally sure if she's part Coyote... she looks like she could be part Border Collie to me . Either way, she is beautiful. I am in love with her little split face! I would recomend tons of love, tlc, desensitizing, and obedience training to boost her confidence.
