Welcome to my site about my Naturally Reared Carolina Dogs! Carolina Dogs are a relatively new, rare breed recognized by the UKC, AKC-FSS & ARBA, and are quite possibly America's own indigenous wild dog. CDs make wonderful companions, athletes, hunters, and bedwarmers! Natural Rearing is the philosophy wherein we raise our dogs and puppies by following the 8 Laws of Health, employing Biologically Appropriate Raw Food and no toxic chemicals on, in or around our dogs. We have found this way of life fosters balance, health and longevity in our beloved companions. For our puppies, we welcome homes that have a very similar philosophy about dog rearing, or wish to learn. Check us out, follow us and share us in other places!!!

2 NR Carolina Dog/Mixes need Homes ASAP

Rachel, the owner of one of my 2011 puppies, Star, has 2 dogs she rescued and rehabilitated and now she needs to find homes for them. 
Here is their story. 
She was driving near Drew, Mississippi, by the home where Archie Manning grew up(Peyton & Eli Manning's Father). These two juvenile dogs (pictured to the left  on the day she found them)were hanging out in the yard, they looked EXACTLY like Star, but they were skinny and dirty. 

She just couldn't leave them there where they would either be hit by a car or caught & taken to the notorious local pound. So she sacrificed a big roast she had just bought at the grocery store and lured them into her car. After she had them safe & full in her car she took them home with her. 

In honor of the Manning family, she decided to call them Peyton and Eli. They were very shy and she had to work with them for weeks to be able to handle them and give them baths. 


Peyton was injured on her face and so she fixed her all up & Peyton's wounds are healed now. Peyton is the larger one in the first picture,a female and is still a shy girl but not ill tempered, just shy. Peyton is cream colored.

Eli (pictured below)is a happy go lucky & friendly male. He is light red.

She thinks they were both under 1 year old when she rescued them last summer(2012)
 Star & Earl took the strays right into the pack and started to teach them the ropes of living with humans. 
So since they needed some rehabilitation before they could ever be adopted she knew the shelter would be a death sentence for them & she didn't have the heart to take them to a shelter. After she spent so much time getting them tamed and feeding them nutritious raw foods she don't want them to go to just anyone, she really wants them to continue to be cared for Naturally as she has done. Peyton & Eli are unvaccinated and have been fed a raw diet and there have been no chemicals or toxins used in or on them for pests or parasites. They are very healthy and happy with this course of treatment. She only wants a home that will continue raw feeding, no chemicals and no or very minimal vaccines and will love them forever. She would like them to stay together but is willing to separate them to the perfect homes. They are currently located in Drew, Mississippi.

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 

If you are interested in adopting Peyton and/or Eli and possibly continuing on with the Natural Rearing for one or both of them please email an inquiry & details about yourself to rachelbuser@yahoo.ca, or call Rachel @ 662-719-8182. My email is susanlewelling@yahoo.com
