Overview
Also referred to as the American Dingo, the Carolina Dog is truly primitive. They are thought to be direct descendants of ancient Pariah dogs that existed 8,000 years ago. Carolina Dog's are not of selective breeding and are difficult to obtain.
Character
The Carolina Dog is extremely muscular, powerful, and agile. They are hardy and possess an alert, intelligent expression.
Temperament
This is not a completely domesticated canine and is not recommended for inexperienced or first time owners. The Carolina Dog is suspicious and shy of strangers. They bond to their human "pack" and have a "pack" hierarchy. They do best with older, considerate children or with children they have been raised with. They may not tolerate strange children. Carolina Dog's typically do well with dogs, cats, or other household pets they have been raised with or properly introduced to.
Care
Occasional brushing with a firm bristle brush is recommended for the Carolina Dog breed. There are no known health issues associated with the Carolina Dog.
Coat
The coat of the Carolina Dog is the most distinctive feature with the appearance being affected by the seasons. The Winter coat is heavier and more dense than the Summer coat. The hair is short and smooth on the ears, head, and front legs. There are longer, coarse guard hairs over the neck, back, and withers.
Training
The Carolina Dog must have a clear leader who exhibits respect. Early, intense, and ongoing socialization and obedience are crucial. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with respect, reward, firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
The Carolina Dog is not suited for apartment or city living. They do best in a rural setting with a large yard to romp and run. Yards must be securely enclosed. Fencing must be buried into the ground to prevent escape through digging and capped at the top to prevent climbing over.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Carolina Dog puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

The Carolina Dog, also known as The American Dingo is a 'domesticated' Dingo brought from Australia. True breeder's whom wish to carry on the standards of size, shape and temperament of the breed are sometimes hard to find. Since they are considered a rarer breed of dog, puppies can range from $1200.00 - $2000.00. Please do your research and find a reputable breeder if you wish to get a Carolina Dog. They need a special home and are not for everyone.

does this dogs tail curl Does the Carolina Dog curl its tail?

Since the Carolina Dog is a 'domesticated' Australian Dingo, they can sometimes have a curled tail. It depends on the linage of the parents of your puppy as to whether he/she will have a curled tail. A reputable breeder should be able to give you all the information you need about whether their pup's have curled tails or not.

how much water does a carolina dog require daily?

1 Comment

All dogs, no matter the breed should be allowed fresh water at all times. But on average, the Carolina Dog will drink about half to a full ice cream bucket of water a day during the spring/summer. But again, your dog should have access to fresh, cool water at all times.

Without a DNA test that has the Carolina Dog on the list, you won't be able to tell which breed or mix of breeds your dog is. In doing a test, you could find out that he is a mix of other breeds and has no Carolina Dog in him. Please note that the Carolina Dog, or 'American Dingo' is a rarer breed of dog. You may want to look into the Chinook Dog, as they look quite similar to the Carolina Dog as well.

I had a Carolina Dog for 14 years. Best dog I ever had. I found her at Lands Ford Canal. Neat, clean, devoted, very protective of my kids, and a great judge of character. I'd love to find another.

I live in NC. I got lucky and found a Carolina Dog on Craigslist. She is the best thing that has happened to me. I thought I was rescuing her but she most definitely rescued me. I see the occasionally at the shelters.

Is it legal to keep a Carolina dog as a pet in New York City?

1 Comment

Carolina Dogs/American Dingos are once domesticated dogs that have been redomesticated very easily and are legally the same as any other dog breed, so, yes, you could have a Carolina dog in the Big Apple, but it might be tough to provide the necessary exercise for an active hunting/herding type breed
