A few days ago, officers from the Dallas Police Department in the state of Texas came upon a little puppy cowering next to the garbage. It was unclear how he had come to be there, stranded all by himself; but, another issue emerged with closer study of the situation.

What kind of animal precisely is he, if you don’t mind me asking?

The cops sought aid from Dallas Animal Services, but the employees there were just as perplexed as the officers. Even the most knowledgeable experts were stumped while trying to identify the species of the mysterious puppy.

“The officer in charge of animal services who were called to the scene took him back to the shelter, where several people remarked that he resembled a young coyote!” The statement was made by Marlo Clingman, who is the spokesman for Dallas Animal Services, to The Dodo.

There has been substantial discussion over the identity of the puppy, namely whether it is a domestic dog, a coyote, or even a combination of the two. On the surface, it seems to be quite difficult to discern anything with absolute certainty.

In order to get conclusive evidence, a DNA test is now being carried out.

According to Mr. Clingman, “His eye color is compatible with a domesticated breed; yet, we are wondering what the findings of the DNA test will indicate.”

The results of the test won’t be available for a few days, but that hasn’t stopped the people who saved the puppy from accepting him with open arms in the meantime.

They have given him the name Toast, and they are doing all they can to make sure he is comfortable and secure as they wait for the truth about his species to finally be discovered.

“I really like toast! Clingman described the little dog as “a fluffy little pup with a huge personality.” Toast will be temporarily housed with our wildlife animal services officer, Jacqueline Sutherland, while we wait for the results of the DNA test. What comes next will decide whether or not we are able to adopt out Toast, or if we need to pursue alternative placement possibilities.”
