It looks like an earth worm to me, from the picture. If it was in your dogs mouth, she may have just picked it up and carried it inside with her. If it wasn't mixed in poop or throw up, it's probably not a parasite type worm.

if U wonder about gut-parasites, a fecal float is not expensive, or the vet can use a small amount of a recent stool to make a wet-slide, check it under the 'scope, & look for eggs / larvae / cysts / spores.

I, too, think the photo looks like a small earthworm, which can easily come into the house on shoe-soles, a grocery bag that was set down while unlocking the door, _____ .

Does Ur dog have any parasite symptoms? - staring coat, wt-loss, inability to maintain condition, gut issues?
