Usually are not meral, saddleback or all white. Thats a typical Carolina Dog, but it is not unusual for there to be any range of traits they may have been added to the gene pool of a true Carolina Dog pack. I live in the midlands of SC and have seen wild packs and they all do not fit into one mold.


You can find the breed standard, which includes colors at the UKC website. The most common color is ginger or a buff. Some carry the recessive gene and produce some Black and Tan. The rarest color is Piebald (Particolor). Saddleback is not preferred.
