Our Rescue dog is an American Dingo???

This is Lady.  We rescued her from Tennessee last September.  She was 8 months old when we got her.  She is a year old now and has become a big part of our family.  We didn't know what breed she was when we got her.  In fact they told us she was a Cattle Dog mix.  Recently someone saw her picture and said that she was a Carolina Dog for sure.  We had never heard of a Carolina Dog, but when we googled it we saw our girl!  Every thing we read about the Carolina Dog (or American Dingo which they are often referred to as) was exactly Lady from the ears to the tail to the digging holes and sticking her snout in them.    She is smart as a whip- she can learn a trick in seconds.  Her favorite past time is chewing (which boils down to stealing stuffed animals from the kids and destroying them in minutes).  She can be a bit crazy, but she loves us and we love her.


  1. I just had to tell you! Your story is EXACTLY like my fiancé and mine. Even down to how you found out her breed. We agree with you, our Emme is a wonderful girl! Here are a couple pictures. She's about 1.5 yrs now, but I don't have any that recent..



  2. Thanks for the links Jay! Your Emme is a beauty! I would love to see more pics!

  3. My Gracie is exactly like ur lady!
