Kenai’s litter of pups is expected during the third week of January 2016.

These pups were sired by Vegas Del Lupo Nero.  This is the same sire as the previous litter of puppies born February 2015.

Here is the information on the lineage of these pups.

Kevin Lanouette, owner of Abby Kennels, and handler of Vegas Del Lupo Nero has this to say about Vegas:
Vegas’ half brother finished 4th at the WUSV in 2013 all German shepherd world championships. Vegas finished 13th out of 68 dogs at the 2015 USA national championships in Pennsylvania.  All dogs in these pedigrees have been titled for temperament and have certification on hips and elbows. Vegas will be competing in the spring 2016 to qualify for the WUSV (all GSD world CH.) and AWDF FCI (all breed world championship) world teams.

Mitch and I have met Vegas a few times now and we are impressed with his easy temperament.  He is a large, strong dog who is not only a superior working dog, but he is a happy, social dog who loves to play.

25 Genius Hacks That Make Having A Dog So Much Easier

25 hacks for dog owners

I wanted to tell you which of the 25 hacks was my favorite, but they are all brilliant.

Enjoy!

(Did you have a favorite?)

german shepherd puppyIn all honesty, having spent a whole week with the last puppy by himself, without his puppy siblings, I fell more in love with him everyday.  It really did not make any sense for me to think that I should keep him, yet he followed me everywhere with curiosity and patience.  I had resolved myself that if the right family didn’t appear by the end of Mothers Day weekend, that he would be a new resident of Buttonwood Farm.

The right family DID appear, though.  Tricia had contact me after she had seen Kenai’s photo on Fred Levy’s Black Dog Project that she had seen mentioned in Boston.Com, following the piece on WCVB’s Chronicle. When I met her two daughters and her husband, it was so very clear to me that these were true German Shepherd lovers. They have an older Labrador Retriever and a younger mixed breed at their home in Chelmsford. One of their dogs is named “Koda”. Disney fans might remember that Koda and Kenai were the brothers in the animated film “Brother Bear”.  We agreed, this was meant to be.German Shepherd puppy with new familyTricia tells me that Koda and “Gemini” are quickly becoming best friends.  I am certain that they will have a long, fun life together with this loving family.German Shepherd puppy with new sibling

I did not intend to become as attached to these puppies as I ended up becoming. But, I feel like each and every one of them ended up in exactly the right home for them. I am very grateful for the folks who shared our pictures and posts to help us find these great homes for Kenai’s pups. I am hoping that their families will continue to send me updates and photos so I can follow everyone’s journeys.

With Angus happily settled in with Liam and his family, we are left with one. One magnificent, curious, patient, smart, fluffy and impossibly cute puppy for sale.

You might have read about Liam. Back in early March, Liam’s parents brought him over to meet Kenai’s puppies.  The pups were teeny back then. Liam enjoyed holding the pups close to his chest while they nuzzled his chin.  Then, his parents told him the great news. Liam was going to be able to choose one of the pups to grow up with him. His expression was priceless.

Well, the day finally came. Liam got to bring Angus home with him. When Liam came to the door, he was greeted right away by his very happy puppy.

GSD Puppy Goes Home

Liam and his dad took Angus to his new home where he immediately got to go outside to the backyard to meet Rex, the older shepherd dog that also lives there. It was instant friendship.

It was a long day of yard work and puppies. By evening, it was time for Liam to share a floor pillow with his new best friend and read a book.  All is good.

Bonnie and Judy from Mobile Animal Care came by today to give the puppies their 10 week check-up.  Everyone got their 2nd series of shots and a thorough physical exam. My little guy (Ooey) weighed in at 15 pounds.  The other two puppies each weighed in at a hefty 22 pounds!  Check out how the fluffy guy (I call him Louis Tiant) is watching carefully to make sure that Ooey is treated gently.  german shepherd puppies get their checkupsJust as Bonnie and Judy were finishing up and leaving, Rich arrived.  Originally, from the photos on Facebook, Rich thought he was here to take Louis Tiant home. Fate had something different in store, as he became smitten by the gentle attention he received from Ooey. The picture in the next blog tells the story there!

That means that the 22 pounds of incredible fluffy cuteness that is Louis Tiant, is still available for sale to a good home.  He has a patient, yet curious, temperament.  He would make a wonderful family dog, but also has some working dog tendencies.Kenai's German Shepherd puppy for saleContact me for more information on these puppies. We are now conducting interviews for folks interested in purchasing Kenai’s pups.

Jenna was home over the long Patriots Day weekend.  While she was here, she taught the puppies to sit and wait for their treats.  The older dogs wanted to get in on the fun, too.

We have one puppy remaining from Kenai’s litter.  He is currently 22 pounds of incredible fluffy cuteness.  He has a patient, yet curious temperament.  He would make a wonderful family dog, but also has some working dog tendencies.

Here he is…. Rocco stopped by the pet supply store with Greg and Rebecca on his way home from here so he could try on his new Patriots shirt.  We think it looks perfect on him.
