Carolina Dog Breed

Carolina Dog


The Carolina dog, also known as the American Dingo, the Southern Aboriginal Dog and the more colloquial, “Ol’ Yaller” is an ancient breed that bears a strong resemblance to the Dingo. Their roots are with wild dogs that roamed the American South, primarily South Carolina and Georgia, where they fended for themselves and through natural selection, evolved into versatile and sturdy dogs that could survive the region’s swamps and forests. Not much has been written about the Carolina Dog prior to the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Though over the last several decades they have been bred domestically, researchers are still learning about these dogs through DNA and behavioral research. Despite their undomesticated background, Carolina Dogs are bred today to be human companions. They are gentle by nature and respond well to consistent training. This breed is meant for the outdoors, and they thrive in families with multiple dogs. They love being outside and dislike being penned up for long periods of time. Carolina Dogs are highly intelligent and once basic training has been mastered, they excel in many activities, including agility.
