I would have paid good money to see that one!!

That sure looks like a Grey Wolf and not like a Coyote .
Might be a pet , it does seem unconcerned but maybe it's never been shot at.
I've never seen either in the wild but it sure looks like a Wolf to me.

Looks like a job for a dichotomous key. There truly is no worse hell-forged object than a broad dichotomous key.

Only way to tell is shoot it and drop it off at the nearest fed building at 2:00 am.
