Natural Rearing is the philosophy wherein we raise our dogs and puppies employing Biologically Appropriate Raw Food, only vaccines required by law and no chemicals on, in or around our dogs.

Taking Applications for Our Next Litter

East Tennessee Dingos next planned litter will be a Ellie Mae & Cooter litter, tentatively planned for Spring/Summer 2016! This litter will be 2nd generation Naturally Reared on the sire side, 3rd Generation Naturally Reared on the dam side. Right now (March 2015), Ellie Mae (future dam) is 5 months old, I will be updating her pictures & accomplishments as she matures. 
 I am taking applications for the waiting list now. When approved, you can secure a puppy from this litter with a $100.00 deposit, or be put on my non-deposit list and a few months prior to breeding I will contact you for a deposit if there are spaces left. First deposits paid get priority when all else is equal when matching a puppy(sex, temperament, color) to a family. The price for this litter will be $1000 per puppy. Sadly, I have been losing tons of money on my prior litters and I cannot afford to continue quality breeding & raising of quality NR Carolina Dogs without raising the price a bit, remember, you are getting a top quality UKC registered Carolina Dog, 100% Naturally Reared, Lifetime mentoring for raw feeding & natural care, ID tattoo & registration of the tattoo, as well as all the goodies I send home with the puppies. I do accept payments, between now & when you pick up your puppy so it is do-able for  most folks. I can take cash, Paypal, Check(in advance of pick up of puppy) & all major credit cards. 
Please feel free to explore my website, and ask any questions you have! Also visit our facebook fan page: https://www.facebook.com/mycarolinadog for more pictures an updates on past litters and what my pack is into.

Now Available Puppies

Naturally Reared Carolina Dog Puppies available from East Tennessee Dingos

Update 1-21-15
Bear is now in his new home in the Lone Star state!
Little River has a home now. He will be going to live with his 1/2 sister Gemma in BC Canada!
An adoption is pending on Judge.
Check back for updates soon!
If you have any questions feel free to contact me at susanlewelling@yahoo.com


I have 3 available males, available to approved homes.
DOB 10-5-2014 (10 weeks 1 day as of this posting)
These puppies are naturally reared, meaning they were weaned to a raw diet, have not be poisoned with vaccines, wormers or "preventatives" not exposed to toxic chemicals in my home or property and they have been raised using Naturopathic protocols, and will be checked out by my Holistic DVM before going to their new homes. The dam, Daisy, is NR as well. The sire, Eli, belongs to someone else & is not fully NR, but as I am the only NR breeder of Carolina Dogs I was happy to find him to bring in new bloodline to my NR line.
I do prefer homes that will continue with the Natural Rearing for the pup's lifetime, Experience is not necessary, but willingness & open-mindedness is. I mentor all my puppy families for the life of the puppy, so I will teach you all you need to know.
They are all sweet & friendly, with typical Carolina Dog behaviors: loving to their pack, wary of everyone else, want to be near their people/pack, wicked smart, prey drive, versatile.

*Judge- Black/Tan w/ white (my son calls him this) he is the largest puppy in this litter. He is very smart & learns quickly, medium energy. He likes to wrestle with his siblings

*Kissy-Bear - Black/Tan w/ white (I call him Kissy-face because he is always wanting kisses. My son calls him Bear. He is medium energy, beta personality. He is always up for an adventure.

*Little River- light red/buff He is the smallest puppy in the litter. He is also the most submissive & is very calm & quiet so far, he likes to sit back & check things out before jumping into whatever situation.

For more information on these boys, email me @susanlewelling@yahoo.com or see http://www.mycarolinadog.com/p/interested-in-puppy-or-dog.html to apply for one of these puppies.

Help Lilo the rescued CD

 Let me introduce you to Lilo and let you know a bit about her struggles. My friend Debra rescued her from a dreadful situation and literally moments from being gassed. 
She was terribly abused. Starving, open sores on her entire back, no teeth, she has been shot, (small bullet still lodged near her lungs. 

 She also had Lymes disease, ehrlichia, scarred lungs from old HW and someone hit her on the head and it blinded her left eye.

 But so much good news along with not so good news. She is healthy and beautiful as you can see from the before and after photos.

 But we just took her to the vet to check her eye. Apparently the drops we have been using on her bad eye no longer can keep the pressure at a safe level and it could affect her good eye. The vet thinks she has a constant head ache. We've noticed that she sometimes withdrawals, so it's probably true.
So we need to have her blind eye removed, which saddens us. The good news is that her blood work is AMAZING! The vet can't believe it. Numbers for a young dog and Lilo is 12! So she has a lot of life left in her. But here is the point of this post...

 The surgery with after care will be about $500.

 So I'm selling my Carolina Dog Posters for a sale price. 

They are
 signed limited edition posters and I
sell them for 
$25, but I'm 
offering them 
for $20 
in order to help
 get Lilo 
her surgery. 
Shipping is $7. 

Debra has a paypal: 
be sure to choose "sending to a friend" so paypal doesn't take out a fee on her or you can send a check to: 
Debra Howard  
33 West Main Street
Crisfield, MD 21817

They make great
 Christmas gifts.
 You can get 
a simple frame
 at Walmart for 
about $8

Debra is throwing
 in a poster of 
a painting she did
 of the Eastern Shore entitled 
"The Soy Bean Field"

Debra's website is http://www.artistdebrahoward.com/    

So let's help Debra help Lilo get well!
