I have kind of an odd question. What is your dogs coat texture like? Gambit's mother was a short haired BC, looked pure from the picture they showed me. His father was either a coyote or a coydog. As he's hit maturity, his coat has picked up a very waxy texture. He's healthy, his coat is healthy, but when you pet him, it's noticiable. After a bath, he's dry within 20 minutes, he doesn't get dirty/muddy, anything like that. It's justa little odd. Does this come from the BC, or from something else? Having never petted a coyote (wonder why?), I have no idea what their coat may feel like.
