Two possibilities - the dog ate stool it found and is now vomiting it up - happens a lot particularly if the dog eats frozen poop.
Or the dog has a blockage of the intestinal tract and is vomiting up digested food it cannot pass through its system.
If the dog has not been passing stools I'd suggest seeing a vet right away. Otherwise you might want to fast the dog overnight and not let it eat any stools when it is out (meaning you may have to leash walk your pet).
Hope this helps you!
