I don't think this is a dog;
1. No large canine nose, a distinguishing feature in any dog; I have never seen a malformed dog with out a nose. The nose looks more like a seal's nose, or possibly a cats nose.
2. Forearms are more humanoid than any dog I have ever seen. Dogs have limited ability to move their front legs because some of the bones are fused, to help with endurance hunting in the wild [as dogs come from wolves]. The upper arm is too long to be canine. On the other hand, felines have a large range of movement with their arms, to bring down and hold prey.
3. Eyes are much different than a dogs eyes. The structure of the face is also much different than a canines. The head is triangular, short, and wide. This is a feline head.
4. The paws are not canine; they are feline. Canines have narrow paws with longer and straighter nails, and their dew claws/thumb are less developed and lay rather flat and lifeless/motionless, whereas a cats 'thumb' is used in hunting and is closer to the other digits. Dog paws do not splay out like that unless under the weight of the entire body, unlike feline paws which are built to be able to spread that way to catch prey.
I would have to say either this is some artists creation [it is LA you know], or that this creature is some kind of feline, maybe somebody's exotic pet. [once again, it is LA]. I would say its probably a cat, maybe a small Puma.
