    Sam 11 weeks

    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Sam is 11 weeks now, he's had both jabs and weighed in at 16.35kg on Monday!!


    He has formed seperate and strong bonds with everyone, Tummel as expected is respected and viewed as a mentor figure, Dan is a playmate/sibling figure and James is for crazy play!!

    His working instinct is incredible, he insists on walking behind us on walks and is always vigilant (except when playing).

    Wow! He is one chunky puppy. He looks such a calm baby too. What made you decide on an Anatolian? Was he bred in Scotland? Are you going to show him?
    Sorry for the third degree.

    It's fine honestly :) we will be showing him, probably only 3 or 4 Scottish champ shows a year though as we don't exactly live close to anywhere ;)

    He was bred in Motherwell, the kennel is Sunlions Anatolian Shepherds.

    My reasons for wanting one are very simple....they are almost exactly the same personality as Tummel. Tummel is the love of my life and it kills me to think of him dying, I've spent the last 2 years getting to know Anatolian Shepherds to the point I'm almost convinced Tummel is a mini lazy Anatolian! I also love that they have a long lifespan and no real health issues other than the typical giant breed ones.

    What beautiful dogs. The second picture took me a moment to work out where one dog ended and the other started!

    He is going to be a magnificent beast when he's fully grown.

    He looks so wise and thoughtful. I think he might have been here before.
    What is the average litter size for the breed?

    He does seem like an old soul! Average litter size is 6-8, Sam was in a litter of 16, sadly 4 died in the first 2 weeks :(

    What a nice pup. I like the stock guardian breeds. Good luck at the shows.
