What breeds of dogs look like a red fox?

My friend and I were driving late at night in a rural but populated area, and we saw an animal that we weren't sure if it was a dog or a fox.So we were wondering, if it was a dog, what breed could it possibly be?Btw, both grey and red foxes are native to our area.
Update: It just seem a bit tall for a fox, and we got a very good look at it,that's why we were wondering.It definately wasn't a coyote,though.Even though I know coyotes can be found in New England, I'd know a coyote if I saw one.I'm a native southwesterner and have seen many a coyote in my time! lol.
