That there is a domestic dog. No question about it at all.
It's been dyed to look like a tiger.

I've seen this COUNTLESS times in Asian countries during my travels.

Here's a crapload of photos from other overseas travelers who caught people selling them on the street as 'tiger' and 'leopard' skins:

Oh, and I just found this, as well: http://www.furrhjy.com/dog_skins_pelts_fly_tying_fishing.htm

Shows that these aren't just normal dogs. They seem to be specifically bred for their fur, so they don't look like any dog breed we're very familiar with here in the USA. This would explain the ruff of fur on the back, and the length of the neck.

But the killer is this right here: http://www.furyongsheng.com/en/furpelt/dog.html

Tell me that's anything BUT dog! ;)

(On a side note, the cougar comment was amusing because cougar parts are illegal in California)...

By the looks of the pictures I'd say it is definitely a dyed dog. Where did you obtain it? Since you're in California its entirely probable it was shipped right from China.

Also, its not uncommon for dyed furs to be colored right to the roots of the hair. For instance, here's a coyote tail that I dyed, with red hair dye:

The color is uniformly red down to the roots, but as you can see there are still a few normal colored hairs where the dye didn't quite "take". So it doesn't mean the fur was naturally bright red (or in your case, it doesn't mean the dog was naturally striped) it was just dyed in such a way that the pigment covered the entire coat from roots to tips.


Hopes this helps!

i know its easy to dye, but every stripe goes down to the root. and the tail is so many different colors, with even white hairs throughout , i just dont see how that would be possible

im gojng to take this thing it a local taxidermist to confirm. its really has crazy hair, i wish all you guys could inspect it here

As far as the cat rug, I would be concerned about the table leg wearing a spot in the fur.

Like I said above, it's a dog breed specifically bred for fur and meat. Possibly some kind of chow mix, though not completely chow. Here's some full un-dyed pelts for comparison:

One was up on ebay last night as a hyena.


The listing has been removed. I think it's really weird that this was posted this right after the ebay listing was taken down. I mean, in a coincidental way. I posted a similar post about the "hyena" pelt on Furhideandbone on livejournal last night. I'm glad I stumbled across this post too, because I had no idea the dyed dog thing was this common. D: I think it's really messed up.

To Bella, I'm agreeing with Light rail coyote.

i realize you are taxidermists, but you also dont have the advantage of looking at the pelt like i can. i know what a solid dyed pelt looks like and i know what a pattern dyed pelt looks like, this is simply not dyed. like i said several times i wish all of you could look at is as closely as i can. no one has even addressed the longer hair down the spine, a substantial 2" longer

in comparrison with mine, i just have to say this pattern is just ridiculous and the fur is not like mine, in the sense that mine has 3" spine hair
