Here the camera has focused on the jacket or possibly the body, not the dog's head. Now it is possible with any single shot that that is user error, but not in EVERY case. All afternoon, the camera ignored the dog's head, despite it largely filling the focus point, and got the background instead.
Intensely annoying.

I checked it at full size as posted and I see that the pant's fabric is well in focus where it is at about the same distance as dog's head. Maybe it shook the head when you shot.

I'd do a little testing with static subjects at various distances to see what happens. I had issues with a dslr that had focus sensors larger than they showed on the VF, and if the background had more contrasty details it would lock there, I only had to learn that it was like that and be more careful.
