Who Canid-entify?

by Geoffrey Basking

“Woman rescues animal and no one can work out what it is”
The Independent

Are you a dog, a wolf, a fox?
What is your taxonomic box?
The virtuosos went all out
To classify those ears, that snout,
But this was all its features told:
I am alone, afraid, a-cold.

UPDATE (from early Saturday):
I am alive! awake! away … !
