No, it’s not a wolf, and it’s not a cayote; it’s an American Indian dog. These working companion animals were almost lost to history after our American Indians were segregated onto reservations, and often left without the resources necessary to maintain the ancient breed. There is now growing interest in restoring the old lines of these beautiful canines.
A stunning image by Nora de Angelli. The blood reds, the shadows, and the red eyes evoke The Beast in Human Form. The mystery and sensuality of Carnivale. Masked images from Carnivale don't get much better than this. http://500px.com/photo/5205401
