We are in the (market) for a new dog. We want a dog that is medium to large, doesn't shed much and is good around other animals and kids (we have a 7 year-old boy). Full-sized poodles and labradoodles came up on the searches for compatible dogs, but, so did the Native American Indian dogs (NAID). The NAID match our requirements perfectly, and are beautiful dogs. We have a bunch of acreage for them to run around on (unfenced) backed up by National Forest. I know the NAID's aren't true Native American dogs, but bred to look and act like what those dogs were thought to be like.
Do any of you own one or have ever owned one? Pro's and cons?
They seem really expensive, from $1500 to $1800 from the few breeders out there.

How about the full-sized poodles and labradoodles? Current and past owners how did you like them and do you think they would be a good dog for our requirements?

Thanks in advance for any information!

Chupacabra's are native to the America South West.  Once trained they make a good family pet and are very protective.

I have 2 Labradoodles a little over 2 years old. They weigh 65 and 72 lbs. Love to play, good with kids, great watchdogs (they don't miss a thing) and they don't shed nearly as much as a Lab.

We have a miniature Schnauzer which is the great with our kids and is one of the smartest dogs I have every been around.  If we had more room we would entertain the idea of a standard or giant Schnauzer.  Smart, easy to train, doesn't shed, good with kids and pretty cool looking.  

Standard Poodles are also good dogs but are more of a mixed bag on temperament.

The NAID looks interesting but from the look of it you would be covered in hair in the spring time.

I adopted.

Dog wasn't given the full set of Parvo shots and became sick with the disease the night after we adopted her. About 7 days in solitary confinement at the vet for treatment cost about 1k and left the dog with one hell of a case of separation anxiety. She still suffers from the after effects of the disease, extremely sensitive to pretty much all dog food, even the expensive stuff. Nasty shits and has trouble shitting sometimes. Otherwise a good dog.

I will never adopt again.

Please don't let your dogs free range. It's bad for the other animals and neighbors, and bad for the dog.

I have three Catahoula Leopard Dogs and really like them.

If it's going to be a 'Rez Dog, you need to find one that is known for its flavor, as well as other attributes.


When my 25 year old son was 3, we visited some friends on Pine Ridge, and he got to be friends with a cute little mutt named 'Wahanpi'. None of us knew that his name roughly translated to 'Soup', until the pup became dinner one night. He and I still enjoyed a bowl of Wahanpi, and joke about it today.

The Native American Indian Dog is a hypoallergenic large breed dog. They are known for their intelligence and docility. They come in a variety of colorings and range in size from 23-34 inches and 55-120 lbs. They are an extremely healthy dog and have a life span of 14-19 years. There are no known genetic health defects in this breed. They are very versatile dogs and are very eager to learn and please their owners. They rarely bark and they are very good with other animals, dogs, and small children. The Native American Indian dog is a very social animal and does best being with their owners as much as possible or with the companionship of another dog. They are most happy with a large fenced back yard where they can have time to run off leash and also do great indoors with the family so long as they can go outside and play in the backyard too. They are not crate trainable and do not do well locked up indoors alone. They have no doggy smell and rarely shed, but mulch their waterproof winter undercoat once in the spring. The Native American Indian Dog is a very athletic, hypoallergenic, happy, docile, intelligent, social dog. They are amazing! The Native American Indian Dog is its own registered breed and it is registered with the International Designer Canine Registry, America’s Pet Registry and Certified Pet Registration.

Op look into Carolina Dogs. They are the real native american dog. I had one and it is the only dog I would pay money for other than a Rhodesian. A female Carolina dog fits your needs. Or better yet two females.

Native American Indian dogs?  Never heard of them.  After reading about them, might as well call them mutts.  Not that that is a bad thing.

Had a Catahoula before, and was a great dog.

A mutt can be a bad thing, designer mutts too. And it's dirty to charge crazy money for a designer mutt.

For pets:

It is worth it to some people to pay enormous sums of money to find a pet that has a particular look, has a particular pedigree or has some story behind its breed. But, when it comes to temperament and basic human interaction, nothing will tell you more than spending some time with the dog first.....which is why most of my dogs have been adoptions without much regard to breed. My best dogs have been free.

For working dogs:

You generally get what you pay for.

Seems like they fall within your size range, don't shed much and are friendly.
