Anatolian Shepherd Puppies... born December 8th, 2017... five girls, three boys (note photos: blue, yellow, and orange are male, the others female).
I breed livestock guardian dogs for farms and ranches throughout the Northwest. I have been in the business of producing livestock guardian dogs for going on six years, and I produce two litters per year one each from two breeding pairs. I put a great deal of time into my puppies, and produce an animal that 1) is an exceptional guardian dog and 2) is socialized to interact well with people. They will provide your ranch, farm, or home with the finest protection you can have against invaders whether they arrive on two legs or four. Most people purchase these dogs for livestock protection, though some of my buyers do select this breed as watchful companions for their families. These dogs provide exceptional service in either capacity. As always, I will accept any uninjured pup back within the first year for a full refund no questions asked. To date, no one has asked to return a pup.
Items Included: Vaccination records, health check, assundry other items (wife likes to include puppy photos etc).

The Anatolian Shepherd Dog is a great working dog. They are still used in rural areas of one Turkey as the shepherds' loyal companion.
Any color. The most common is fawn, with black mask.
Short to rough with neck hair slightly longer.
Anatolian Shepherds are brave, cautious around strangers, and are sometimes stubborn.
This breed gets along well with other animals that they have known since an early age. They may not be as friendly with strangers. These dogs are fairly guarded around strangers, but rarely have problems with children in their own family.
The Anatolian Shepherd requires very little grooming. In times of shedding, use a double-row comb to remove dead and loose hairs.
This breed responds well to a firm and experienced trainer. Training should begin early.
The Anatolian Shepherd requires a great deal of exercise and should be allowed a large fenced yard.
Country of Origin:
This breed may be prone to eyelid entropion or to hypothyroidism. Hip dysplasia may occur, but not as much as in other large breeds.
Flin is an atheletic dog with a gentle nature. He adores all new born creatures from ducks, to puppies, to lambs. He has the sighthound build of his mother but gives rise to puppies with the massive mastiff build of his father (the larger males go over 140 pounds). He is loyal and loving.
Sierra is my alpha. Even Gunny (160 pound male) listens to her. She has delieverd four litters and fought off two mountain lion attacks. She is fearless, and forever watchful. I doubt there is a dog on the planet with better instinct. Her pups grow into fearless protectors.

Questions You Should Ask the Breeder
1. Are the puppies' parents "certified"? This means that certain breeds are often at risk for genetic conditions such as hip problems, heart problems and eye problems. Most of these diseases are inherited, meaning the disease is passed from parent to puppy. Many breeders will have their dogs evaluated and tested for that disease and ultimately "certified" by a veterinary specialist to be disease-free.
2. What are the sizes of the puppy's parents? Know how big the parents are, to get a good idea of how big your puppy will be. Is that the size dog you want?
3. Ask to meet the dogs parents. If possible, meet the puppy's parents. Notice if they appear to be in good health and evaluate their overall temperament. Are they shy, aggressive, or well adjusted?
4. How have they socialized the pups? Have the pups been around other dogs? Other people? Socialization is critical in puppies 6 – 16 weeks old. Proper socialization consisting of good experiences of a puppy with other puppies and lots of different ages, sizes and types of people will give you the best chance at having a well-adjusted dog.
5. What vaccines has the puppy had? How many shots has he received and when will the puppy be due for his next puppy shot?
6. Have the puppies been dewormed? All puppies are born with worms and routine deworming is recommended.
7. Have any of the puppies in the litter been sick? If so, what were the signs, the diagnosis and treatment?
8. What visits has the puppies had with the veterinarian? Have they been examined and declared "healthy"? If not, what problems have they had? Have they been on any medications?
9. What is their guarantee? What guarantee does the breeder give with their puppies? If the puppy is found to have a severe illness, what will they do? This is a difficult topic but one that is a lot easier to cover up front rather than later.
10. Recommendations? Ask the breeder for a couple references of puppy owners that they have sold within the past year. CALL them. Find out if the breeder was fair, if they were happy with their pups, and how any problems were handled.
11. Breeders contract? Does your breeder require a breeder's contract? If so, what is in it? Is the breeder willing to take back the puppy at any time, if you can't keep it?
12. Limited registration. Some breeders require that you spay or neuter your dog by a certain age. If that is the case, that may not be a problem but it is best to know before you get your puppy.
13. What is the family history? Ask if the breeder has information about the breed line. For example, ask how long the dogs have lived and what they have died from. Write it down. This may be important for monitoring your pet as he gets older.
14. What is the breeder currently feeding the puppy? Regardless of what they are feeding, it is ideal to continue feeding the same food for the first few days at home to minimize the risk of gastrointestinal disturbances. If you choose to change the diet, do it gradually.
15. Health certificate and certificate of sale. Ask the breeder if he will supply a health certificate for the puppy issued by his veterinarian. Some states require also a certificate of sale.
16. Does the breeder belong to a breed club? Ask for references.
