He studied and monitored this group, which closely resembled the wild Dingo dog of Australia.He and other scientists discovered that their bones were virtually identical to those of Neolithic dogs found in Native American burial grounds dating back thousands of years.
To add to the confusion, some dogs recognized as Amstaffs with the AKC are considered America Pitbulls by the UKC.There is also disagreement about whether the NAID is the same dog as the Carolina Dog, or a very close relative.Regardless of the outcome of this controversy, dogs descending from ancient wild dogs do live today, and are commonly called either the Carolina Dog or the North American Indian Dog, depending on its ancestry and “type.” A University of Georgia biology professor named Dr. Lehr Brisbin (or Brisbane) first discovered a pure population of primitive dogs living naturally in the United States Department of Energy’s Savannah River site in South Carolina.In the mid-1990s, Karen Markel of Majestic View Kennels began a specific breeding program focused on re-creating the appearance and versatility of the original dogs of the Native Americans.She got her long-haired foundation dogs from Native Americans living in the Sawtooth Mountain area of Idaho and Montana; those dogs differed widely from the smaller, short-haired wild dogs found in the South. Markel apparently crossed those dogs with the Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute, Chinook and German Shepherd in an attempt to “re-create” rather than preserve the original pedigree of the type of native dogs favored in the Northern part of what now is the United States.Unfortunately, overbreeding does occur in some blue Pitbulls and can result in behavioral and health problems.
When you consider dog adoption, be careful to find a breeder who follows ethical breeding practices.Resembling a smaller version of the Australian Dingo, the Native American Dog is among the last of the native North American dogs that were companions of the original American people.Their ancestors are thousands of years old; some stayed close to human settlements, while others stayed wild and preferred to fend for themselves.They are not a separate breed or specific Pitbull bloodline.The blue color is a recessive trait, and both parents must carry this recessive gene for blue in order for one or more puppies in a litter to inherit it.A number of breeders believe the Amstaff and American Pitbull should be two separate breeds because the Pitbull has been cultivated separately for more than 75 years. Some Pitbull experts argue that blue Pitbulls are not even true Pitbulls.
