Carolina Dog (American Dingo)

General Description

The Carolina dog, also known as a yellow dog or yaller dog, American Dingo, or Dixie Dingo, is a medium-sized breed, occasionally found feral in the Southeastern United States, especially in isolated stretches of longleaf pines and cypress swamps.

The typical Carolina dog has pointed ears, a fox-like snout, and a tail that curves like a fishhook when raised.

They look similar to Australian Dingoes, but they fall under Canis familiaris.
