Carolina Dog: Breed Temperament, Exercise Needs & Health
Dogs belong to the Southern group of Sight hounds.
The American rare Breed Association
registers this breed by including the dogs of the
breed in its “Spitz and Primitive Group”.
Again the United Kennel Club has
classified the Carolina Dogs as ‘pariah dogs’
together with the Basenji (Africa) and other primitive
Also Known As: American
Dingo, Indian’s Dog, Dixie Dingo and North
American Native Dingo. The common nicknames used
for it are- Yellow Dog, Ol’ Yaller and Yaller
About Carolina Dog
Country of Origin, History of the breed
It is believed that the Carolina
Dogs are direct descendants of the ancient
pariah dogs, which had accompanied the Asians
who had traveled across the Bering Straits
some 8000 years ago. These Indian breed dogs
coming from the deep southern regions of America
were the first dogs to be domesticated in
the Americas. The Kentucky Shell Heap Dog
and the Basketmaker Dog are two examples of
ancient pariahs on the North American continent
that are akin to the Carolina Dogs. Indians
had used such dogs for tasks like herding.
The yellow color of the Carolina Dogs had
earned them the name of “Old Yaller”.
Wild dogs had roamed freely in
the deserted areas of South Carolina for many years.
Dr. I. Lehr Brisbin, Jr. had discovered and named
the breed of these wild dogs as Carolina Dogs. While
Brisbin had noted that the bone structure of these
dogs appeared similar to those of the Dingo other
scientists had observed that the bone structure
of the dogs bore similarities to the remains of
Neolithic dog bones. Such Neolithic dog bones had
been obtained from Native American burial sites
thousands of years old.

A General Description of
The Carolina Dog has a muscular
build and a medium-sized body. Many features of
sight hounds can be found in these dogs. The dog’s
appearance resembles that of a small Dingo. A host
of special features of the dog’s body had
been crucial to its survival in the swamps and forests
of the South.
The dog has a lean but level and
strong torso. Its chest is deep, well developed
and is lighter in color compared to the other parts
of the body. The belly is well tucked up, as is
characteristic of sight hound breeds.
The Carolina Dog has almond shaped
dark eyes. The pair of ears is set high and stands
erect. The head of the dog is wedge-shaped and the
neck is long. The dog’s coat is thick though
shorthaired. It is usually deep red ginger in color.
However, the coats may also come in spotted white,
tan, desert-sand, beige, yellow, red sable and orange
colors. There may be pale buff markings on the shoulders
and side of muzzle. A dense undercoat forms during
The Carolina Dog’s tail exists
in the shape of a fishhook and is carried in different
positions according to the mood of the dog.
17 inches and 24 inches.
Temperament of the Breed
Though not a completely domesticated
breed the Carolina Dog is accustomed to living in
an apartment with a family. However, it is better
to introduce the dog as a pup to the owner and the
owner’s family. After all it is basically
a pack dog and may keenly long to bond with the
members of its pack/family if brought in as pet
at an older age.
It is easy to train the Carolina
dogs and with early and proper socialization they
turn out to be loyal and amenable companions to
all family members. These are clean pets that are
easy to housebreak. They usually do not have any
problems getting along with children and other household
pets. The dogs are playful and sociable and can
adapt themselves to both indoor and outdoor living.
The dogs have been known to have a tendency to howl
at certain noises.
How active is the breed?
Being a moderately active dog the
Carolina Dog needs to get reasonable amount of exercising
everyday. One long walk daily or vigorous play can
act as good regular exercise for the dog. The dog
can also be trained and made to undertake certain
special physical activities thus winning applauses
while exercising its body.
Suitable for apartment
It is to be remembered that Carolina
Dogs are a breed have still not been completely
domesticated. Hence, they are not really suitable
for being kept as pets in apartments. It is best
if the dogs kept at places where they get plenty
of space around them. They stay fine outdoors if
it is not too cold. They adapt well to hot and sunny
climates. Their need to exercise considerably needs
to be borne in mind while selecting an environment
for their living.
Being short and close to the body
the coat of the Carolina Dog is pretty easy to groom.
Once-a-week brushing of the coat is a good enough
grooming measure. The coat can be washed occasionally
There have been reported no major
health issues or concerns associated particularly
with the Carolina Dogs. However, these are larger
dogs and as with other large dogs these too may
be sometimes found to be developing hip dysplasia.
