The two who started it all! Bandit our Foundation male. He was our second Anatolian and he was such a gentle giant! He moved here with us but died last fall at the age of 12.
Cucuk our foundation female. She was our first Anatolian. It was because of her we fell in love with this breed. She did not make the move here to Deer Park. She died in Oregon shortly before we moved up here. She is carried on here through her grandaughter Akila.
The Anatolians have been worth their weight in gold! We have not seen any evidence of the Cougar that passed through our place prior to the dogs arriving. And the coyotes have been heard but not seen. The dogs are doing their job quite well!
Saka on guard with her buddy Black Velvette. Nothing comes by without us knowing about it.
What a face!
Kulu's Big brother.
OUR NEW PUP!
Thanks to Hill & Holler French Alpines
for this wonderful pup. Our son Cameron picked him out for us and he said this was the most consistent quality litter he'd seen. They were all as nice as Pavel There's more where he came from available!
Pavel is checking out the vegetation! He does live with goats you know, and that's what they do best!
These are our Guardians who reside here with us.
Pictured here at a year and a half old.
She is our lead female. She was the last female Bandit bred before he died. She had 5 pups. One male went to YellowKnife, Canada, another male went to Bozeman, Montanna and the other male went to Molalla, Oregon. The larger female went to Woodland, Washington and the little girl we retained for ourselves and is working out wonderfuly!
This is Saka/Bandit pup we kept. She is a lot bigger now. As you can see below.

Pavel is growing up!
He is quite handsome!
Pavel is a gangley pup. He is blowing his puppy coat and growing taller. He lives with his Nubian buddy ( Wyeast ) and a Alpaca.
We do have litters available occasional. However we feel that it is our responsibility to make sure we have qualified buyers out there before we make this committment. This is a big breed of dog and not everyone can own a dog like this. They are a very big asset to a herd owner of livestock, but they are also a very big responsibility as well. We also have our females health checked and exrayed for hip and elbow anomilies. They are not bred until they get a clean bill of health!
Our litter that was born this summer, are now all working in their new homes!
