Mellea farm provides goats
. . . and the shepherds to protect them
|AKC Anatolian Shepherds|
|Aziza is a proud parent. Both father and mother are AKC registered purebred Anatolian Shepherds, great working dogs, and both have received "good" OFA ratings for their hips. We found the perfect match for Aziza in Sultan, grandson of Champion Shahbazin Alp Arslan and from Jennifer Floyd's San Diego line. Breeding took place at Winnetka Ranch in Jamal on 2 July and we hope to have many beautiful pups the first week in September 2011. Call soon to reserve your pick from the litter of these beautiful dogs from champion blood lines and which are excellent working stock. The price for puppies is $1500 with earliest deposits receiving sequential "pick of the litter". Deposits will be required and a sales signed. CLICK HERE TO VIEW SALES AGREEMENT.|
Puppy Update: At eight weeks all puppies were examined by an AKC judge and were determined to be in excellent health and of superior structure as high quality show dogs according to AKC standards of conformation, agility and temperament. Since three weeks of age, the puppies have been trained with goats and have shown good bonding as future farm and ranch guard dogs. And, since six weeks of age, they have been undergoing training for socialization as family dogs and have shown high intelligence and have learned quickly.
