Surprise, you don't have hyena in  the list?

Hyenas are my favorite canids, specially spotted Hyena, followed by African Wild dogs.

Hyena aren't actually Canids.

Yes, it's a feliform...

Hyenas originated in the jungles of Miocene Eurasia 22 million years ago, when most early feliform species were still largely arboreal. The first ancestral hyenas were likely similar to the modern banded palm civet; one of the earliest hyena species described, Plioviverrops, was a lithe, civet-like animal that inhabited Eurasia 20–22 million years ago, and is identifiable as a hyaenid by the structure of the middle ear and dentition. The lineage of Plioviverrops prospered, and gave rise to descendants with longer legs and more pointed jaws, a direction similar to that taken by canids in North America.

Then came Dog like hyenas.
After that bone crushing hyenas.
Now the modern hyena.
