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.
Weight
30-44 lbs

When is it too cold for a Carolina Dog?

The Carolina Dog is a warm-seasoned breed of dog, meaning they were not bred to be able to deal with cold weather. If the climate allows for snow, it is probably a good guess that it is too cold for a Carolina Dog. However, with a proper jacket, the breed would be fine exercising outside; but would need to be allowed to be indoors where it is warm other wise.

Are Carolina Dogs good for bird hunting?

The Carolina Dog is not a hunting dog, they are difficult to train and are very primitive. Their prey drive is very strong and they are known to chase smaller animals. I suggest looking at some real hunting breeds that fit as bird dogs.

Yes you can get your dog DNA tested. You can purchase a dog DNA test at the vet or online. But make sure that the Carolina Dog is a part of the breed list on the test that you purchase.

Anonymous

There is no DNA test to prove if dog is a Carolina Dog. If you are wanting to find out if your dog might be one you would contact the Carolina Dog Society.

Anonymous

No DNA test is available at this time for the Carolina Dog as only AKC registered breeds are on the tests.

We have a Carolina dog and did a DNA test- it was SO off! It said our dog is part Chow Chow, part Sharpei, and part German Shepherd. Um, no...

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

This is so not true and a very bad representation for the breed as the Australian Dingo is a separate species and is a regulated species in USA by the USDA as an exotic animal. Carolina Dogs are not Dingos nor are Carolina Dogs from Australia, nor are they a hybrid of Australian Dingos and dogs they are dogs. Them being called American Dingos is a misnomer, cultivated by breeders to sell dogs. They are a breed founded by Dr. I Lehr Brisbin in the USA of dogs descended from dogs that crossed the land bridge with paleolithic man. Recent DNA has shown some of their DNA may go back to South East Asia. This does not make them Dingos as many breeds of dogs also come from that area. Chow Chows, Sharpei dog, Akita's, Shiba Inu's, Jindos and many many other dog breeds. Please do your research and if you have any questions you can go to the breed club page http://www.thecarolinadogsociety.com/index.html or come join the breed Facebook page were the science behind the dog is discussed. https://www.facebook.com/groups/331349057056786/

These dogs regularly are caught by dog catchers in the south. Mine originates from Arkansas. I would recommend to do a dog shelter search for one. Rescue before purchase every time. Take a good look at what these dogs look like. so you are aware what to look for in a pup. or even rescue an adult. they are tough nuts to crack. but they are unbelievable dogs. great companions strange affection. they are happy a couple feet away from you keeping watch out the window. mine sleeps every night in the same bed as me. and does not mind a cuddle. But again they like there space and always have a three foot bubble around them, Rescue these dogs. they are rare incredibly fun and friendly. But if you are a cotton tail/skunk/ raccoon or any other small mammal look out they will catch kill and eat these creatures and bring the other half to you. I have had to tomato bath mine a couple times due to skunk.

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