Looks like one of our shaggy dingoes.

Yeah, that sure is odd for a coyote, it might well be a domestic dog. The white tip on the tail and the white foot say "Dog", coyotes' tail tips are more typically black (like the one in this photo). If it is a coyote I'll bet it's got a high percentage of domestic dog DNA -- much, much more than usual for an eastern coyote.

I didn't know that they (Coyote) could breed with a dog; learnt something today.

Although our eastern coyotes' DNA is typically up to 20% derived from Algonquin wolves, some of them also have domestic dog DNA. Even though coyotes' and dogs' breeding cycles are usually out of sinc and the puppies are normally born too late in the year to survive the winter they sometimes breed successfully. For a bit more on eastern coyotes see my post -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/2014/01/the-eastern-coyote-coyotewolf-coywolf.html

I didn't know what to make of it.  I don't see a collar so ruled out a stray.  I would be surprised to see it in the woods though, I know that.
