Here is their story.
It is not known for sure if Peyton and Eli are true "full-blooded" Carolina Dogs, or if they are mixes or mixes of other breeds altogether, but they look & act very similar to what verified & registered Carolina Dogs look and act like, so based on where they were found(deep south) and their looks and behaviors we are going to call them "honorary" CD mixes. Unless Dr Brisbin himself was to look at them and give us his approval that they are truly Carolina Dogs, we will just stick with CD-MIX.
Carolina Dogs are a pariah/ancient type of dog thought to be most closely related to the Australian Dingo and quite possibly to the dogs Precolumbian American Indians kept hundreds or thousands of years ago. "CD"s are very pack oriented and bond closely with their human pack. They are not attack dogs but are excellent alert dogs. CDs excel at anything they are asked to do and can be thought to be stubborn, but are actually very intelligent and just need to be asked (not forced) to do things so they understand what is being asked. They shed very minimally and do not have a 'doggy' odor, especially when fed a natural diet, so they make excellent house dogs. Here are some more links about Carolina Dogs
