LGD Puppies

Boz & Isla became parents on November 23, 2022. They’ve grown SO fast. This is from morning chow time on January 19th.

5 females are available to the right country home to people who are familiar with LGDs and have a purpose for them. There are so many restrictions at Facebook, Next Door, craigslist and other web platforms as I’ve tried to find appropriate new homes and owners for them. Too many people who’ve contacted me are looking for a pet and know nothing about these special, ancient breed(s) of working dogs. I will keep all the puppies before I let any of them go to inappropriate places & people.

Isla, a purebred Anatolian Shepherd, is a wonderful, first time mother. She is almost 2 years old, weighs 105 lbs and is 27″ tall. Here’s a picture of her on a warm day in October, 2022.

Big daddy Boz is half Kangal and half Turkish Boz Shepherd. He is 2 1/2 years old, weighs 150 lbs. and is 32″ tall. He’s very sweet and protective of the property and Icelandic sheep. Here’s a picture of him and the property he patrols from 2021, before I doubled the size of the fencing for the sheep and dogs.

Before Boz and Isla, I regularly heard coyotes howling at night, sometimes right outside the window. I haven’t heard coyotes in over 2 years, except occasionally in the far distance after I’ve heard Boz & Isla’s warning barks.

If you are within driving distance of Beloit, WI, have plenty of rural space with secure fencing, some livestock to look after, some knowledge of these ancient Turkish breeds, and a commitment to work with & kindly train them, send an email to smallcalmfarm@gmail.com.
