If you have always wanted a completely NR pup, and/or a Carolina Dog that is thriving & balanced , here is your chance!

He is 4.5 months old & is the smartest dog i have ever seen. He learns just by observation or being shown 1 time. He is super sweet, soft & gentle & gets along with males & females & is submissive to older dogs & all people.

 We are not planning another NR CD litter for at least 2 years, possibly longer!


The family he was promised to has had some unexpected illness with their older dog & understandably cant take him at this time.

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
 11x17,
 signed limited edition posters and I
 usually 
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: 
artistdebrahoward@gmail.com
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!

Update on Daisy / Eli 2014 Puppies

The puppies are now 25 days old, they will be 4 weeks this Sunday(11-2) . They have grown so much and are maturing at an alarming rate! Eyes opened, teeth are in, they are eating ground raw food, and gnawing on chicken necks, in addition to nursing. A couple of pups escaped the pool  we were using as a whelping box, so they are in a new Den(crate) Potty area enclosure. They are liking it & are already catching on to the concept of not pottying in their den.  They have been outside a couple of times as weather allows and we hope to get them out more in the coming weeks!
We still have a couple of males available to approved homes. They will be ready to go to new homes after December 14th.  If you may be interested in a Naturally Reared Carolina Dog, please read MORE ABOUT GETTING A NR CAROLINA DOG PUPPY  then fill out the app that is linked and email it to susanlewelling@yahoo.com.

So this is their new home, hopefully escape proof! 

They seem to like it! 

What is cuter than puppy spooning? 

Purple (F) 
Orange(M) invented a new sport: Dinner Plate Body Surfing. It did not go over well with his siblings.
 
They are already learning to go potty outside of the bed/crate/den!
