has anyone heard reports of dog headed people in cities.
It sounds interesting and also really odd.
I don't think there real though but wondering why people say they see them?
What are they meant to be?
I would say that people say they see dog-headed people for the same reason that they report seeing any number of other unverifiable likely-imaginary things. Human senses are fallible and what we experience as vision is greatly dependent upon the post-image processing that happens in our brains. That processing is highly subjective depending on the individual, their state of mind, their previous beliefs regarding paranormal things, and also whether they were under the influence of any perception-altering substances.
Its why eyewitness testimony isn't the most solid of evidence that one can rely on.
Inspector must read witness first before he heard story. And knew where,when she/he saw things. Why?
Many people can see same thing but acutally all could interpert differently.
For example. Lets say that 5 people saw a dog.
First will instantly think on family member.
Second will think monster.
Third will think dog.
Fourth will think food.
Fifth will think love.
People interpert differently and altough all of them interpert differently they are all correct. Even discription is different.
It depends on human history,expirience,education.
Also many people see things from one angle and seeing same thing will discribe differently.
Lets say four people saw cup of coffe.
First will say (who looks from top) : it was black with white ring and little smoke.
Second will say white cirlce with white line (that see it from bottom)
Third (who see it from a side) will say it looks like a square.
Fourth will say it looks like rectangle with elipse attached on one side.
All four are right. Just seeing from different angle.

Never heard of them either. But they live in cities? Where everyone has a cell phone and there are street cameras. Where are the photos?
They must need food and shelter in the cities. I wonder if they compete with the coyote populations?

Did you mean your people called Mongols Dogheads? I'm of Mongolian descent on my father's side, second-generation American on his side too. Call me ugly, I'll buy that, but dogfaced, that's rough.

Just opposite. On eyewitness testimony we send people in jail.
That is despite the fact that eyewitness testimony is notoriously unreliable.
Human memory can be extremely unreliable. I read about a survey done of September 11 eyewitness accounts. People who were interviewed just after the events described what they saw. A year later they were interviewed and on average something like 30% of the details of their stories had altered in the meantime. Five years after 9/11 they were interviewed, on average, over 50% of the details of their stories had changed from the original account they gave.
And that says nothing about how reliable the original account was. I've seen myself what happens when people are interviewed after a car accident and none of them can agree on even the basic nature of what happened.
The fact that eyewitness testimony is used to convict people is not an indicator of how reliable it is, it is in indication of a serious flaw in how evidence is weighed in court cases.
