Fang the Tame Coyote is a pet in Age of Empires III that is mainly available to the Sioux.

If the Home City Card Smoke Signals is sent as the Sioux, the Sioux War Chief can train pet Coyotes for the price of 50 food. 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 Health Points if Infantry Breastplate is researched at a Teepee after "New Ways" card is Shipped.
