My dog brought this up onto the porch for me to see. I have never seen a cater piller like this and was wondering what kind it is and what will it turn in to. Also would it hurt my dog if it got poked by the stinger on the tail of it?

    That looks very similar to the caterpillars we used to see on our tomato plants up north.
