Northern Africa has Golden Jackals, Black Backed Jackals, and Side Striped Jackals, Balto's African Wild Dog, Ethiopian Wolves and Bat Eared Fox. Coyotes are nearly the same height as the Jackals. Dingoes are another cousin, and when they lived Tasmanian wolves had pouches their pups could relax in, and because of their stripes some people thought the Tasmanian wolf as a different shaped tiger instead, it's stores online like CafePress.com that show this issue.
