The American Indian dog is a working nurturing all around type, medium sized and lightly built breed with a natural looking muzzle, and longish pricked ears. Their bushy tail is carried down with a slight curve. The head is in proportion to the body. The muzzle is wedge-shaped and moderately long to provide balance to the longish pricked ears. The stop is gentle, providing a flowing balanced curve from the plane to the muzzle to the top of the skull. The skull is slightly domed between the ears. The eyes are medium sized and almond shaped. Eye color includes Pail Yellow or Pail Blue with the occasional silver/gray.

The American Indian dog is a working herding type, medium sized and lightly built, with a natural looking muzzle, and longish pricked ears. Their bushy tail is carried down with a slight curve. The most important objective in preserving this ancient breed is maintaining and improving its natural balance, primitive instincts, and versatile working abilities, for which it was originally developed. This truly beautiful, naturally balanced, all-American dog was close to extinction only a few years ago. Now, thanks to all the years of research and selective breeding, hopefully, they can regain their proper place in our society to teach man to stay in touch with his natural instincts and the beauty around him.

They are excellent home and family watchdogs, capable of adjusting to any environment. Working versatility is one of the breed’s exceptional qualities. This breed needs a calm, but firm, confident consistent pack leader who displays the proper authority over the dog to avoid any behavior issues. Socialize well.

American Indian Dogs are said to be traced back to 30,000 years in North & South America. Mainly the many groups of Plains Indians in the United States developed these dogs by combining all the types they traded from all the Indian Nations around them. Not having any other domestic animals, the dogs were very important to their entire culture. For thousands of years, Native Americans used these dogs for hunting, tracking, guarding and herding.
No breed specific genetic problems – very healthy in the body and mind. Do not allow an AIDog to become over weight.
