And people should be more careful with those dogs and just leave them out in the country where they can roam around.
Europeans did meat up with (and meet) native dogs. The Iroquois kept them near their villages OUTSIDE the palisades, and in early Fall they'd turn the deer loose in the corn for a couple of weeks to clear the fields and get fat. Then they'd herd the deer together and allow the dogs in to kill and eat them.
In the winter the Iroquois would dine on fresh dog meat all winter long.
To them the dog was a more convenient way of storing meat ~ and deer, with the dog, played the part of the white man's hogs that came in later.
Since wild dogs were essentially "game" and the young ones had a disconcerting habit of jumping up in your arms wagging their tails, I suspect the native dog populations didn't exactly prosper.
BUt, as I noted above, my father owned one. I know cousins who keep them around (out in the country), and as far as I know no one has ever gone for an AKC certification for any of them. But you'll know one when you see him.
If that’s the way it went with indian dogs, you can bet you a$$ those dogs weren’t much good for anything. Their breeding wasn’t selected for any useful skill and likely there wasn’t any selective breeding at all. Probably about like trying to train a husky to fetch, only worse. No wonder the european breeds displaced them.
