Agreed. I l lean yote, but domestic dogs come in all sizes and shapes. Could be Rover on a romp.

If you could pick one, or the other, what would it be????

Easy to say dog 'OR' coyote. More often than not, the shape of a coyote track is easy to recognize. But other than watching the critter make the track, There is understandably a margin for error.

My vote is still Coyote.........100%

I was leaning coyote.  NJ site member had good input, the unworn/unclipped nails is an interesting take.

Coyote.  Pointy claws and there is an X made from the spaces between toes and pad.  Domestic dogs have bigger pads and less space between pad and toes that won't make an X.  There may be exceptions though.  Toe nails that aren't warn down or clipped is another sign of yote.

Coyote. It’s just that it’s not beyond reason that it could be domestic dog. But I’d say 90% coyote.

it's in soft sand with toe pads looking pretty deep. if you said i had to answer then i'd carefully push away the sand to see how deep those claws go in and my answer might very well be coyote.

They are all dogs.   We classify them as different species but genetically they are all the same animal.   The Eastern coyote is a dog, wolf, coyote mix.   It has DNA from all 3.
