looks a little like a sabre toothed tiger to me. if not correct it may help steer you in the right direction? 

or therocephalian Gorynychus masyutinae

Thanks for that - the therocephalian taxon looks like it

Definitely a reptile, look at the splayed legs and only the saber-like teeth are modified, the rest are uniform.

Scylacosaurus is a possibility but another is Inostrancevia

They all like possibles - now I'm confused. Maybe I'll just include all types!

Well, it is worth remembering any photo or model of a dinosaur is just an approximation of what we think they would have looked like.  Look at the whole brontosaurus thing - it was a species, no it was a different species put together wrong, now its a species again.

Some sort of Cynodont, Cynognathus maybe?

 

Edit: I think Inostrancevia is a better fit.

Inostrancevia - I do believe that is the one
