A dog that looks like a lion? Was this the one?

Obviously, camping is safer than hunting...

Mike Magee,

LOL

Haven't seen that one before--someone has a lion as their avatar.

Clearly, camping is safer than hunting lions. Especially that one!

Kai,

Here is the link to Sandy on tractorbynet. "Found a coyote, I think"

Please tell me what you think of the story. When you get up to about page 25 or 27, I've written some conclusions and talk about our trip to Scottsdale.
Enjoy the pictures too, but you might have to login to see them. It's worth it if you do.

Found a coyote, I think

Bob,

If you read the story, you might like Sandy and find her very interesting.

Raspy: got about 7 or 10 pages in so far, got sidetracked on the Rabies vaccine issue & link (which the link did not get to; as far as I know from 18 years of breeding pugs, you cannot buy rabies vaccines for dogs unless you're a certified vet, and so far that site doesn't offer rabies vaccines for dogs although you can enter it in the search--but all you get are other, normal vaccines...), and lost the site but I'll go back soon...fascinating!

MY attitude, if I had come to your house and you'd have said, "This is Sandy, our coyote puppy," I'd have said, "She's wonderful! Can I pet her?" That's me.

Having raised about 22 litters of pugs over 18 years, (to age 8 weeks and some we still have in their old age), I learned how to handle some things; so far your story sounds like you were doing fine and really needed no advice. The rabies vaccine was always the one unsolved issue--sooner or later you have to see a vet, though I expect the sanctuary would've handled that--I'll find out when I read further.

THANKS for the link, what a wonderful adventure. Your posts are well written and fascinating.

I miss having the puppies around...but having once had 11 at one time (from three concurrent litters--not planned quite that way, but animals have their own agendas sometimes), and being stuck in the house for weeks except for the occasional quick grocery run, I can live without them. But it can be so wonderful with them...and with a coyote! Amazing.

BEST
Kai

Smile Sandy

So when was Sandy taken to the wildlife sanctuary. Is she/he still there? What ultimately happened/is happening to her/him?
Our friends in Apache Junction tell us about a coyote trying to lure a neighbor's dog into the pack...
It was a hair standing up at the back of the neck experience to have them howling around our RV.

Australia probably would like to have a few coyotes:

Kai, hope you had the time to finish reading John's story of Sandy, it has to be a 1/million relationship. Roger, I get FB comments from the wildlife sanctuary Sandy went to but have never seen any info of her. John might have some news of how she's doing.

We went to see Sandy in May. It had been a couple of years and she immediately recognized us. We woke her up and she came running over, whimpering and full of joy.

She and her partner Shorty are in an enclosure together and completely stable. They have dug their own den, have shade and a small little house structure. The whole area is probably about 50' by 30' or so.

She is very friendly to the workers who clean out her area. One or two of them will go in and sit with her, offer a game or a treat. When people walk by she trots along the fence with them. She has never been dangerous in any way and is extremely intelligent.

It's not a life a coyote would choose for herself, but she has never proven that she could hunt successfully and is not fit for release. At the same time, she is extremely healthy and emotionally stable, so she is excellent for study. Being at Southwest, she has excellent health care, good food, a life partner and shelter. Early on, some work was done to learn more about her and to make sure she was stable in captivity. During all that, everyone was amazed at her friendly demeanor and how smart she is.

We didn't trap her or keep her penned up when she was with us. We rescued her from near death and nursed her back to health. She was always free to go, but loved us and wanted to live here with us. She brought an enormous amount of joy and a unique experience of getting to know a dog from the wild. Her story on tractorbynet chronicles her development and relationship with us and it is a wonderful story. The depth of her intelligence, sense of humor, respect for pack structure and caring, are impressive. She fit into our family like a domestic dog. It was very difficult to put her in captivity at Southwest Wildlife, but it had to be.

As far as hearing coyotes at night, I really enjoy it. They are often close by and singing their song, but I won't let our dog out when they are near. They are very shy and we never get a glimpse of them. I quietly slip out the door as they are calling and wait outside until they are very close. I turn on a flashlight and they go silent. Once in a while we or a neighbor will catch a glimpse of one during the day. They are around, but cat-like in their ability to go un-noticed. It's really funny how careful they are to not be noticed, but will sing and yip as loud as they can in the middle of the night, full of joy as they run free.
