Hanging Dog Creek is a stream in the U.S. state of North Carolina. It is a tributary to the Hiwassee River.
Some say the name Hanging Dog is a corruption of "Hanging Maw", a local Cherokee, while others believe the name stems from an incident when Indian's dog was "hung up" in river debris before being rescued.
