Request American Indian Dog Puppy InformationAmerican Indian Dog - These dogs were selectively bred by the plains Indians for thousands of years. Natural hunting companions, these dogs were also used for herding and guarding the campsites of the nomads. The coyote-like appearance is of no coincidence. Many tribes continued to breed their dogs back to their coyote cousins to maintain survival instincts, pack loyalty and high intelligence qualities. While today's dogs retain the desired traits of their ancestors, those traits remain because of careful breeding programs and research rather than introduction of primitive stock. American Indian dogs should not be confused with coyote or wolf hybrids.
