Contact the federal trapper for your area. Explain the situation just as you did here. Explain you are not worried about yourself you understand coyotes are only a threat to your dog. Ask them if they can remove the coyote as a threat to your dog?
Sick or old coyotes that can no longer hunt or are just lazy from eating dogs and dog food left out not to mention the idiots that feed coyotes. These animals can carry diseases that can be transferred from animal to humans and the ticks can also be left behind to attach to your pup carrying disease.
Good Luck and spoil the Pup.
Edit: Remember Federal Trapper not the new and improved California Department of Fish and wildlife or the new Fish and Wildlife officer.
