Allie had her pups in bitter conditions. We had some losses. The photo top photo is the day of the births.  The immediate above photo is January 3, 12 days later.  The pups have grown so much! At this time we have five healthy pups. One girl and 4 boys. All but one boy is spoken for.  If you are interested in a guardian for your livestock, contact us and we can talk. Our contact info is on the website. 

Allie’s pups continue to grow! They are starting to open their eyes.

Prince

Prince2

“Prince,” AKA Perseus of Anderson’s Acres,  joined our operation June, 2017.  Prince is a beautiful Maremma who is quick to alert us of any threats.  He is young and will mature nicely.  Prince’s  DOB is Nov 13, 2015. His sire is Leonardo PSM4230G and his dam is Mona Lisa ZZF5211G.  He is an excellent guardian of our alpacas.  He was evaluated by Penn Hip May 17, 2017. The results were great, indicating that Prince has minimal risk for hip OA. As a result, he joined our breeding program.  This fall he bred our Allie.  Allie and Prince’s pups arrived Christmas Eve!

Allie has been bred to our sire, Prince (Perseus of Anderson Acres). 

Allie is a wonderful guardian of our alpacas and now will have a litter for future guardians the late Dec. 2017.  Her sire is our Prince. Please check out the Prince photos and info.  These two should have extraordinary  puppies.  There has been lots of interest.  If you are looking for a guardian puppy, email (howe2206@gmail.com) us and we will put you in the waiting.  Once we know she is pregnant (for sure) we will e-mail you and you may send a deposit ($250) and we will hold a pup.  We only sell to working situations.  Males sell for $850 and females for $900.
