Cricket and her puppies...DOB 1.02.2013

Taken just two days before delivery
I had tried to breed Cricket a couple years ago and she did not take, so you can imagine my surprise when she started showing signs of pregnancy around the same time Dilara did. I had not intended to breed her but guess the Big Guy had other plans.

She had been OFA'd after she turned two and it was Good. So when she showed signs of pregnancy I was surprised! She did have a slow progression on labor so decided to take her to my Vet and c-section her. Three healthy puppies!
At the Vet waiting...

She did great and didn't struggle at all. I would have struggled.

Our girl Cricket blessed us with three pups, 2 girls/1 boy (Dutch). 1 girl is reallllly big (center). This is her first litter.

Mrs. Birdsong, we are looking for a female Anatolian puppy. Would you have any available sometime soon, and what are your prices? We have sheep and goats, and I have saved your site for years, waiting until we were ready to get LGDs. We are in Kansas south of Wichita, but make it to Missouri quite often. My sister lives in Shell Knob.

Please let me know if you might have a female puppy for sale, you can contact me at my website,

Thank you so much. :)

Hello Teeny Elliott. I do have a litter of pups on the ground right now. Born April 19, 2016. I have one girl available from the litter. The rest are boys. Email me at I live only 15 minutes from Shell Knob.

Hello Lisha Boothw, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Cricket. She was a sweetie. I have her sister, Tig, and Tig actually had a litter of pups last January. Amazing at 9 years old. She is doing great! Cricket has an offspring living in Canada. She is almost 3 yrs old. Again so sorry about Cricket. She was an awesome girl and amazing livestock guardian as well as great companion.
