Anatolian Shepherd Puppies
We are pleased to announce that our senior bitch, Lost Armadillo's Shahane, has been bred to AKC Bronze Grand Champion Timaru Serag Mounir. Shahane's pregnancy has been confirmed and whelping is expected the first week of September. You can see photos of Shahane and Mounir's previous offspring under the Previous Litters tab. You can view both their pedigrees under the Anatolian Shepherd Pedigrees tab. Shahane is a purebred, AKC registered Anatolian Shepherd Dog and a proven livestock guardian on our ranch surrounded by forest land with abundant mountain lion, black bear, coyote, and bobcat. She has whelped twice, producing two excellent litters with pups that have become livestock guardians. We selected a daughter from each litter and both are full-time working LGDs at our ranch. Mounir is a very capable livestock guardian for goats at Salmon Creek Ranch, which has rough terrain with coyotes and bobcats. Mounir has an extremely successful show career off the ranch, having dozens of Best of Breed wins, including at Eukanuba, and was the top ranked Anatolian male in the U.S. in 2013. Read about Mounir on his page at Salmon Creek Ranch.
We prioritize the placement of our Anatolian Shepherd puppies as working livestock guardians. If you are looking for a family guardian, we strongly encourage you to consider adoption. Check with the National Anatolian Shepherd Rescue Network for available Anatolians. Please read our page on Evaluating Breeders and Owners to review important issues about owning and selecting an Anatolian Shepherd Dog. Prices for our livestock guardian puppies are $1800. Prices for breeding and show prospects begin at $2200.
*** If you have a need for an adult Anatolian livestock guardian, already trained with sheep, there several dogs from an excellent breeder that have become available due to the owners downsizing. Please email Chyril Walker for more information on these working dogs. ***
