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

    similar, but def not a chow, im a dog groomer so i am very familiar with the coat of a chow, the only thing chow about this is the fluffy tail

    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:

    bella, you realize your asking taxidermists on here? thats what we are! so saying your just gonna bring it to a taxidermist is kind of a slap in the face.lol. good luck with it but light rail coyote is DEAD ON!!!!!!you already got your answer!!!lol.
  6. 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

    wow that is a coincidence...i wonder if that pattern goes all the way to the root as well. doubt it.

    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

    Just curious, how did you get that cat rug?
  11. I only posted it because when I clicked this link, I assumed it was the "hyena". I was surprised when I was a different post. o_O

    That "hyena" was just shorter furred. I can't confirm if the dye job went all the way down to the root, because it was gone by morning.

    I still really believe you have a dog on your hands. Having longer fur on the back is a normal thing for dogs and cats. It's just the hackles of the animal. They raise them when they're excited or angry, usually to make them look bigger. That's why the fur is longer on the back of your pelt.

    There is a good example in this link.

    Regardless of your denial, it is what it is, and that's a dyed domestic dog. Nothing more to it. Case closed. Over and done with. :p

    Know how I know? I've held those pelts in my hands. I've seen them with my own eyes. I can see by the photo that yours is no different and no more unique than any other dyed domestic dog skin. There are photos EXACTLY like yours on Chinese fur farm websites labeled as DOG.

    You've got nothing unique, and any true taxidermist or wildlife enthusiast can see that.

    We've all told you that it's a dog. If you don't believe that, that's your decision, but your willpower won't magically transform it into another species. ::)

    As for that longer hair, it's a common occurrence among canids. Looks at the images on the Chinese fur farm website and you'll see that they're exactly the same; they've also got the ridge down the back. It's not so unique after all.

    Nice rug there - you do realize having that is illegal in your state and you could be in serious trouble if the law were to find out right?
