Litter Announcement: Noodle + Gunnar

This time we are really doing it!  Noodle and Gunnar have been shacking up, if you know what I mean.  ;-)

We are expecting our first litter of Tibetan Mastiff puppies.  They should be arriving in mid-December.

If you are a regular reader here, you know that Noodle is one of our first girls, is a great protector of our alpacas and a very funny, very important member of our family.

Gunnar is the starshow dog, livestock guardian and my big boy.

Tibetan Mastiffs are working dogs that do best by also having a lot of family interaction.  These are extremely intelligent, social and athletic dogs that have added an immeasurable joy to our lives.

The formal announcement is below.  Please wish us luck and of course, if you're interested in taking one of these incredible pups home, please let me know.  :-)


Dam:


KayaKyi Bala (Noodle)
DOB: 12/22/2010

PennHIP: 0.41, 0.41 (70th Percentile)
Elbows: Normal
Thyroid: Normal

Her Parents: CH Ayyangadoo Guyuk Khan (Bentley) x Kesang Camp’s China Doll (China)

Noodle is a big girl that carries herself very tall.  She is extremely athletic and an enthusiastic guardian of our alpacas. She is friendly off property, willing make friends with the dogs and people she meets.  However, when she’s working, she is working.

Sire:


Timberline’s Colorado Gunnison (Gunnar)
DOB :: 02/12/2013
OFA: Good, PennHIP: 0.44, 0.43 (60th Percentile)
Elbows: Normal
Thyroid: Normal

His Parents: CH Timberline Barni Drakyi (Barnes)  x CH Timberline’s Calamity Jane (Janey)
Gunnar is a very social and large-boned boy.  His red-gold coat and ever-present smile make quite an impression.  He loves to meet people and other dogs.  He is a natural guardian of our alpacas with an easy-going attitude.  With limited showing, he is just 2-points shy of his AKC Conformation Championship, having won Best of Breed over the current #1 Tibetan Mastiff at 12 months of age.
Both Noodle and Gunnar are an important part of our family.

Litter:

We expect this pairing to provide good-sized puppies with the confidence and aptitude for family and livestock protection.  As such, the puppies will be started with alpacas and socialized with people.

All puppies will be AKC registered with the prefix, Colorado.

Deposits are now being accepted as the litter is expected to be born in mid-December 2014.

COI = 8.9%

Both parents reside at our home.  We are happy to answer questions about the puppies and parents.

Congratulations! While I wish I could have a puppy (no doggies in small living space life), I can't wait to see the pups. I think they are going to be cuter than all get out. :)
