Anatolian Shepherd Puppies
At Marble Peaks Ranch we focus on producing sound, healthy Anatolian Shepherd Dogs that excel as livestock guardians. Livestock guardian ability is the paramount priority in our breeding program. We aim to place the majority of our Anatolian Shepherd puppies as working dogs on substantial acreage with serious threat of predation. Puppies with temperaments better suited for family guardian work are placed accordingly. If you are looking for a pet/companion, we encourage you to consider adopting an Anatolian. 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.
Marble Peaks Ranch Anatolian Shepherd puppies at seven weeks old out in the pasture with our sheep. All our puppies are socialized with sheep as soon as their eyes and ears are open. They are trained by their dam to behave appropriately with livestock, to hunt vermin, and to guard the boundaries of their property.
In the photos below, the puppies are only five and a half weeks old and already quite an armful.
Our next litter is expected to be out of Marble Peaks' Ziya. Ziya is a classic fawn, smooth coat Anatolian with a black mask. Ziya is a full-time guardian for our sheep on our ranch. Ziya is extremely athletic and is first in the pack to reach the fence when a threat appears. She has a proven record of killing four-legged intruders. However, she is sweet girl who is friendly and affectionate with people. Ziya is registered with the AKC. She is OFA certified with Hips "Excellent", Elbows "Normal" and Thyroid "Normal." Click to search her listing on the OFA website. Ziya's sire is Timaru Serag Mounir, an AKC Silver Grand Champion and who ranked third among all Anatolians in the United States for 2015. Mounir spends the majority of his time as a livestock guardian with goats.
