Carolina Dog goes by many names. Some of them are North American Native Dogs, Indian Dogs, American Dingoes, Dixie Dingoes, and “yaller dogs.”

This breed is known for being extremely shy, but once they feel welcome and accepted, and part of the pack, they will become open and inviting.

They will love spending time with their humans. Overall, this breed has the appearance of a wolf or a jackal. They are in fact descended from dogs that accompanied the Paleo-Indians who traveled from Asia to North America over the Bering land bridge.

Even today they can be found living wild-like life near the Georgia-South Carolina border. They have pointed ears and a fox-like snout. Their tail curves like a fishhook when it’s raised.

To many, they have a similar appearance to Australian Dingoes. They aren’t fond of strangers adn will always alarm their humans when possible trouble is around.

Carolina Dogs have an extreme pack mentality which helped them survive for so long, meaning they won’t do well on their own and will prefer to follow you around.
