The coyote is a small, grayish-brown, wolf-like canine that inhabits deserts, prairies, and other grasslands, but can survive close proximity with humans. Clearing of forest lands in some areas has actually expanded the range of coyotes. Because coyotes are smart and adaptable, they are learning how to live alongside humans. They communicate with long, wavering howls and sharp yips that individuals vocalize on top of one another. This can make an eerie cacophony, haunting and beautiful in its own way.

Fang the Tame Coyote
If the Home City Card Smoke Signals is sent as the Sioux, . Training time is 10 seconds, and it pays for itself very fast as a lot of experience from Treasure Guardians and resources from Treasures can be acquired.
Overall, they are a weak pet, being very cost effective against Treasure Guardians if the War Chief is taking all the damage but not very useful against military units compared to other pets. In patch 1.03 of The Asian Dynasties, its cost was decreased by 10 food and its damage was decreased to 6.
Fang the Tame Coyote is affected by War Chief Health Aura increasing his speed by 10% (0.5) and War Dance increasing his damage by up to 27% (1.62). Strangely, Coyotes get 10% (4.5) increased HP if Infantry Breastplate is researched at a Teepee after the New Ways card is shipped.
Fang automatically gets stronger when advancing in Age.
