I think my dog has worms. Help verify?

Hello, so this morning i was taking my dog out to do his business as usual. After he was done with his thing i saw a long stringy thing stuck onto his butt. I thought it was a peice of gum or something so i diddnt make anything of it. My girlfriend got a closer look and told me to come over to my dog. I kept noticing that more and more was coming out of the string. Ended up taking pictures of it but i do not know if it is worms or something worse. This is my first time owning a dog and im not really familiar on these kinds of matters. Anyone know what this could be? and any possible treatments. Thank you

It looks like it could be a tapeworm. Do you see little segments that make up the worm? Make an appointment with your vet and bring the sample with you. The vet can prescribe an effective dewormer for it.
Tapeworms often have segments break off and then this segment will become a new worm. So if you see a worm or a segment it is really important to do a worm treatment to prevent the infection to continue.

Bring a poop sample to your vet.
