Repare bem neste cao. Talvez wee esteja olhando, por assim dizer, para o elo perdido com os caes primitivos das Americas. E : ue pesquisas parecem indicar. >amado de Carolina Dog ou de American Dingo, seu DNA tem ado alvo de estudos de quatro ." .ersidades norte-americanas. 1-5 -esultados sugerem que o Ca- : "a Dog, comparado as demais ragas domesticas desenvolvidas na regiao, teria de fato parentesco mais proximo com os primeiros habitantes caninos do continente americano. '^Sf^ 0 interesse cientffico por ele se deu gragas ao ecologista Lehr Brisbin que, no final da decada de 70, se dedicava ao estudo das origens dos caes antigos. Na ocasiao, Brisbin deparou com um cao similar ao Dingo Australiano, considerado por alguns outra subespecie do lobo, nao a mesma representada pelos demais caes domesticos. 0 ecologista, entao, localizou outros desses cachorros em areas isoladas da Carolina do Sul e da Georgia. 0 trabalho dele, noticiado pela Imprensa, acabou nos laboratories das universidades. Comunidade cientifica a parte, o Carolina Dog ja caiu nas gragas da criagao organizada. Em 1995, foi oficialmente reconhecido como raga pela segunda maior entidade norte-americana do segmento, o United Kennel Club. Tambem e aceito pela American Rare Breed Association. Permanece, contudo, fora do rol de ragas admitidas pela Federagao Cinologica Internacional e pelo American Kennel Club [AKC]. "Nao estamos muito preocupados com isso porque nao queremos que o Carolina Dog seja criado por muita gente e passe, portanto, a ter muita interferencia humana, o que, em poucas geragoes, o modificaria na aparencia e no temperamento", explica Jane Gunnell, presidente da The Carolina Dog Association. Segundo ela, soha no momento quatro pessoasenvolvidas na procriagao dessecao. "Ele e uma perfeita raga natural,e nos, humanos, nao somos capazes de melhorar a perfeigao", opina. Tanto nos EUA quanta no Canada, donos desses caes os mantem dentro de casa como companheiros familiares. "Os Carolina Dogs sao muito apegados as pessoas", diz Jane. Pelo padrao U KG, eles devem ter de 45 a 50 cm de altura e de 15 a 20 kg. Apresentam pelagem curta, orelhas eretas, cauda em anzol e cor vermelha em varios tons.
