NOTE: DUE TO THE STRONG WORKING INSTINCT OF ANATOLIAN SHEPHERDS, WE PREFER TO PLACE PUPPIES IN WORKING HOMES, AS GENERAL FARM OR FAMILY GUARDIANS, OR WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD EXPERIENCE WITH LARGE WORKING BREEDS. ANATOLIANS NEED ABUNDANT SPACE AND FREEDOM TO EXERCISE AND PERFORM THE JOB THEY WERE INTENDED TO DO. WHILE THEY ALSO EXCEL AS WONDERFUL GUARDIANS AND COMPANIONS TO FAMILIES AND CHILDREN, THEY ARE NOT MEANT FOR ALL ENVIRONMENTS. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THEM FOR CITIES, TOWNS, OR URBAN AREAS WITH SMALL YARDS, APARTMENTS OR CONDOS.

1. Buyers are absolutely required to OFA certify (hips/elbows/thyroid) their pups as stated in our Puppy Contract.

2. Every puppy owner, whether they have a companion or working dog, plays a part in the future and health of our breed, thus genetic info from each individual pup in the litter is important to the well-being and reputation of our line.

3. If you want a puppy and DO NOT plan to do the prescribed health testing (OFA/thyroid/etc.) as stated in our contract, we do not have space on the waiting list for you. We are ONLY interested in homes that have the same interest in the wellbeing of our breed that we have.

4. We DO NOT SHIP ... if you are not willing to come pick up your puppy in person, please do not apply for one. This is very important to us because we need to see the people who will be taking care of our pups so we can put faces to the voices. Also, if you are willing to come and personally pick up your pup, then we get the sense that you are also willing to do everything necessary to help your pup grow into an amazing dog you can live with comfortably.
