i live in small town somewhere in the upstate from germany... its a rumor here that some wild dogs live in the woods here. And yes you could sometimes hear a barking dog. But it could possibly some guy who takes his dog for a walk...
so could survive a former pet dog in the wild?

It's just the opposite of domestication. Just like how a a feral, or wild, dog can be adopted and live a domestic life, a dog could be released into the wild and learn to fend for itself, and become a feral dog.
And it mainly depends on their upbringing and previous environment, plus adaptation skills on wether or not a dog will survive in the wild.
