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!
this would be my guess. since there actually a meat dog i would find it a common skin in asai.

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.
