Nakita has recovered well from her back to back litters but we feel she can benefit from some time just enjoying ranch life.  

We have successfully navigated a heat cycle without breeding - a challenging feat with these dogs!  Although the breeding window is only a few days every 6 months, they are extremely motivated, persistent and creative!

Latest breeding

   Timing:                           December  2019

   Rationale:     Nakita's next heat cycle

1st match between Nelson & Nakita

Puppies expected

   Timing:                              January 2020

   Availability: Puppies all have homes

   Location:            Cottonwood, Arizona

We bred in Alberta and whelped at our Arizona home.  Our dam acquired an infection which developed into pneumonia.  The puppies were born a little earlier than expected and were tiny.  We worked hard, bottle feeding round the clock to help these pups survive and thrive.
