Dog

This is a dog print because:

- it is too large to be fox.
- fox prints, even in soft mud which spreads a print, are narrower compared to length.
- the gap between the pads does not form the distinctive X shape of a fox.

I suggest you compare with other fox and dog prints on iSpot.

If you put up an identification of dog I'll agree to it.
