So, I looked up the breeding ecology of dogs and sure enough, it is common for a litter of pups to share one mama but have different daddies.

Female dogs release multiple eggs during ovulation and are thus capable of conceiving every time they mate during this period.

dogs are highly unusual in their variation, from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane.

Coyotes and dogs are related, and they are biologically capable of producing hybrid litters.

Coyotes are highly seasonal breeders; dogs are not.

Coydog females have a shifted estrus cycle that does not coincide with the coyote period.

Domestic dog and coydog males do not tend to litters, whereas male Coyotes do.

Some dingo hybrids have been deliberately bred as pets but turned loose due to behavioral problems.

These cross-breeds are accepted back into the wild dingo population, where they breed with pure dingoes.

In some parts of Australia, up to 80% of dingoes are part domestic dog.
