Cleo's litter born January 1, 2011

Cleo is now raising seven pups in our little cabin. We are all living together in this cold weather and everybody is doing fine. The pups are just starting to wobble around on the cabin floor right now. As both parents are CKC registered, these pups will be registrable by new owners that wish to do so. Viewings can be arranged in February with pickup in the first week of March.

Cleo is ready to have her litter

Cleo is very big. She is due to give birth in the first week of January and stays in our warm cabin most of the time.
She loves attention and is a very good mother. Big Bruno is the father of the litter and both he and Cleo are CKC registered German Shepherd dogs. I'll keep posting updates. (The two pups on the top of the blog are from the same parents)
By the way, I currently have a late bloomer for sale. He was born on September 14 to Ashley, out of Bruno and is doing very well.
Please call for more information.

How does wolf genetics affect dog behavior?

Most of my pups have about 25% wolf blood by design. This has been part of my breeding strategy for many years and, contrary to popular opinion, the result is a less aggressive and hyper dog, on average, than the German Shepherd created by prolonged line breeding.
If you think about it, a wild canine will do everything in its power to avoid confrontation with humans under normal circumstances. There are three exceptions: Starvation, being cornered or protecting its young.
A wild canine is also generally smarter than a domestic one because of the natural selection process involving survival in the wild.
Over many years of breeding I have found that the wild genetics is highly beneficial in creating a great family companion.

Next Litter

The next litter is due to be born in mid June. Parents are Cleo and Cisco. Updates will be provided. All the pups from previous litters have now been sold.
