DSCN4609The puppies had moved from the house, to the sheep barn, and this past (warm) weekend they got to go out into our sheep handling area to play. The sheep handling area is a 30′ x 40′ heavy duty fenced area where we bring the sheep to administer vaccines, trim hooves, and provide other care. The puppies were so cute.

DSCN4380_croppedThe puppies have left the house and moved out to the barn. I have constantly been amazed at how clean these puppies keep themselves.  When they were in the house, they choose a portion of the pen to poop and they only went in that location.  They have done the same now that they have moved to the barn.  It sure makes clean up easier.   I DO still have puppies available and I would LOVE to hear from you if you would like one.  When you contact me, let me know if you are looking for a Kangal to use as a Livestock guard dog or family pet.  Also let me know if you are interested in breeding or not.  I ask because there are 2 that are not “breeding quality”.  They have white markings that are not approved for the breed, so they will be sold on spay/neuter contracts.   There are a few that are just beautiful representives of this breed.  I think it would be nice if they were kept intact.
