Native American Indian Dog

Newer Older

Once believed to be extinct, the Native American Indian Dog descends from (or, according to some dog enthusiasts, is based upon) the dogs that lived among the American Indians for centuries. Today, this rare breed serves as a wonderful household companion.

The Native American Indian Dog has a medium-sized, athletic frame covered in either a short/dense coat or a longhaired coat. Color combinations range from silver to black to tortoise shell. The Native American Indian Dog also comes in the broken-pattern coat called “Spirit Dog” by American Indians. Its handsome head has a long, slim muzzle, raised ears and alert eyes. Its tail can be either long or curled like a Siberian Husky.

    Great pic and a very informative and well-written description. (I'm Seneca by the way). My daughter always wanted a Husky, but after I showed her this pic, now she wants a "spirit Dog". How can we get one?

    My fiancee and I have launched a new wildlife website where we are hoping to educate children about all different species and subspecies. We are also covering mutations and hybrids, extinct species and animal cruelty. We want people to understand that animals have a right to survive alongside us, and to bring the horrors of such things as poaching and the medicine markets into view of people who would otherwise take no notice. We hope that with our site people may take a more positive approach which will hopefully lead to the survival of some of our most precious and vulnerable species. We are a non-profit website (which was launched in January 2010) and may only have a donations area for people who wish to help us build the site to cover as many animals as possible and get the message out there.

    I am writing to request permission to use this photo. I would of course credit you under each pic and even create a link to your Flickr page if you would like. If you wish to help please email me with permission and a copy of the photo(s). Any help would be appreciated, Thank you
