Our new neighbor

Well, it seems with all the construction going on around here we have a new neighbor. At first there were two of them, but lately there's just this one. He looks really hungry and lonely. However, he has been brazenly walking the streets of our neighborhood. Turns out he cuts through from his old home and ends up right at our house! LOL I'm not sure how to feel about this. On one hand I know we have taken his home but on the other hand I worry for my kids and other small pets. But, seeing him this close made me feel better. I took this pic with my camera phone, so I was pretty close and he seems really mellow. He even got startled by a dog at one house he was poking around. I may call a rescue later and see what they think. He surely can't last long alone and in a "city" with no food. Oh, btw, I've named him Wylie.

UPDATE! Well, after geting a closer look I was able to look online and have discovered that my new friend is not a coyote. He is a wolf dog hybrid. I called a man from the rescue and he told me that the other one was hit by a car a week ago, so this guy is alone. Although, there is nthing to be done. If animal control gets him they will put him down, and the rescues are full. So, I will just hope for the best. Guess I should change his name. How about Los Lonely Boy?
