wedge shaped head with powerful jaws, almond shaped dark eyes with a soft, intelligent, yet alert expression, and large erect high set ears which are very mobile. The Carolina Dog is very well muscled and powerful for its size, showing strong, free and agile movement with a lot of drive and is very flexible and able to turn instantly. Distinctive to the breed is the “fish-hook” tail, carried in various positions according to the mood of the dog, but never slack or loose.

The Native Americans used this breed as a herder and hunter. The Carolina Dog is naturally suspicious of strangers. However, it is reserved, but affectionate around those familiar to it.
In general females tend to demand more affection and seem to be less incline to entertain with outsiders. They want to know what the individual will contribute and subconsciously whether this individual would be trustworthy around her puppies. Females when in heat have a personality deficit. People say “She is just about out of heat and back to her old self.”In general males are more adventurous and independent and they tend to be more accepting of extended members of your pack or in other words, your friends.
