When Nicole heard about the dog’s story so far, she pointed out that coyotes and dogs have mated before, giving birth to ‘coy dogs’, but actually seeing a dog running with the coyote pack is something very rare. And this is why.

Coyotes are not very accepting and trust only their kind, but it seems that the ones in Kingston have been more curious about the dog. But even though the dog was a fit member of the pack, the rescuers wanted to give him the opportunity of finding a home. So they set up a trap. Would he fall for it?

14. The All-You-Can-Eat Buffet Was Set
