I have found small white dropping’s (similar to rice) on my front porch. In the last three weeks my dog has started growling & barking at night., occasionally. Any body have any suggestions?

Until you can see the source, there is not much you can do. There could be a variety of stimuli that you dog could be responding to in your neighborhood. They have a better sense of smell and hearing.

Your dog could be responding to something several yards from your house such as a skunk, cat, raccoon, coyote, person or any other critter which may have decided to come into the area your dog considers its territory.

As for the white material, it could be almost anything. Without knowing what is in your area and pictures, I have no idea what it is.
