here is an idea, I'm not sure what area that was, but it almost looks like a wild-dog, or some kind of canine, breeded with a hog, or pig like animal, hence the long snout.

I will go with a sick fox or coyote. Both have long snouts, add that to the no hair or very little hair and it does “change” the shape some. Also figure in camera angle. This one seems to have mange and could have other parasites as well. Usually one parasite can lead to getting other parasites because the body becomes weakened.
The size and shape do not appear to out of the ordinary from either. As for how it is running it might be tired because it is being chased down the road at “X” speed in the heat of the day, not to mention how long it was running before the camera was turned on.
If this one is caught I would put money on it being either of the two.

I thought mange causes red itchy spots and blisters on canines. This thing looks like it is either hairless or has a very short and smooth dark coat. If it was manged wouldn't we see patchy red spots?
