What animal was this?

I was walking my dog on a road in the woods, and I looked down this path that went deeper into the woods and I saw a black figure about 200 feet away standing still. It looked dark-ish brown, and it had large pointy ears. I stuck to the road, and it looked at me. I was looking at it. A few cars drove by, and it turned, put its head down next to it, and trotted away. I live in a rural town in central Massachusetts. The time was around 4:15pm on January 3rd.

Update:

It looked about 50-60 lbs. I think it was probably a coyote. It was too big to be a fox.

    Probably a large coyote, or maybe a stray/lost dog.
