An American Indian Dog: It is not a Wolf, or a Coyote. These working companion animals were almost lost to history after The Native American Indians were segregated onto reservations, and often left without the resources necessary to maintain this ancient breed. There is now growing interest in restoring the old lines of these beautiful canines.
This is the same breed, still called American Indian Dogs that we have all seen described by our First Peoples, from thousands of years ago. Lewis and Clark wrote about them, extensively, in their travels across the American continent.
