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.

Does your Carolina Dog bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Carolina Dog puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

The Carolina Dog, also known as The American Dingo is a 'domesticated' Dingo brought from Australia. True breeder's who wish to carry on the standards of size, shape and temperament of the breed are sometimes hard to find. Since they are considered a more rare 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.

Carolina Dogs/American Dingos are native to North America, and were not "brought from Australia".

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.

Carolina Dogs are not from Australia and are not Dingos. The current DNA tests link them and sp,e other American native breeds to dogs from South east Asia.http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/07/130710182540.htm

How much water does a Carolina dog require daily?

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.
