Canis ferox (Latin: canis: dog, ferox: fierce; hence fierce dog) is a species of canid which was endemic to North America and lived during the Late Miocene and Early Pliocene, existing for approximately 5 million years. The first fossil was found in Rancho Viejo, Guanajuato (Mexico). Researchers estimated that their weight could be between 13.3 kg and 14.3 kg, based on the Legendre and Roth correlations. Paleontologists Miller and Carranza-Castaneda noted that their skull resembled that of an ancestral coyote, Canis lepophagus. However, this species had other characteristics similar to Eucyon davisi, belonging to a different genus of canids. These characteristics suggest that Canis ferox marks the beginning of the cladogenesis of the genus Canis.
