Infi Litter Announcement – 4/18/21

Infi blessed us with 12 puppies on Sunday April 18th. Mom and all dozen pups are doing excellent!

This litter is a purpose-bred cross of livestock guardian dog breeds out of health tested, working parents!

About the Program:
Northwest Guardians has worked to provide quality LGD  puppies to our fellow homesteaders and ranchers to protect their livestock, family and properties since 2010.

All of our breeding dogs:
-work to protect our Kunekune pigs, Katahdin hair sheep, mini cows, chickens, rabbits, ducks, and now quail from the local predators.
-are screened for genetic diseases by EmbarkVet, and have Hip Xrays and other health testing done to assure that we are producing puppies from healthy parents and lines.
-are temperament tested and those who do not meet the Northwest Guardians standard for breeding are sold to working homes.
We do not breed every dog we purchase as a prospect.

All of our puppies are picked for their ideal home match from our reservation list. In order to be invited to reserve a place on this litter, you will need to APPLY for a puppy (you are not guaranteed a specific pup until week 8, see timeline below).

    Hello, I am in search of an Anatolian or other dependable mix for our little ranch where I need protection from the predator load. We are nestled in the forested area in Haskill Basin in Whitefish with two horses and 4 small rescue dogs. Do you have any pups available or are they all spoken for? I am also interested in training me and the pup. Thanks, Andi Lynch
