Top Definition
Someone (generally from the South) who would vote for a yellow dog if it was a Democrat. Alternately, someone who would rather vote for a yellow dog than a Republican. The term probably dates back to the 19th century and gained national recognition in the 1928 Presidential election. Today, used most often as a term of approval or self-identification.
My daddy was a yellow dog Democrat and my granddaddy was a yellow dog Democrat — I’ll never vote Republican.

More than likely some sort of Southern White, urban or hick, who is enamored with radical liberalism that he sees on the East and West Coasts of the USA. May be a biker, Vietnam veteran, etc. Usually champions the causes of minorities and homosexuals, but yet tries to keep the facade of being somebody that will die for Old Glory.
That old fool right there is probably a Yellow Dog Democrat.
