History:
Tanner was whelped in April 2015, and he joined our pack in 2020. He has been shown in conformation and did well, but his owner for the last 4 years didn’t want to send him out with a handler away from home to finish his championship. Once everything settles down, we hope to get him back into a show ring to finish his title. 

Now that Tanner is in Montana, he is getting to know the pack and family at Northwest Guardians. In his short time here, Tanner has demonstrated his solid temperament, aptitude for protecting his family, and he is getting acquainted with our livestock.

Fun Fact!
Tanner’s littermate sister Ates is a BIG deal!

MBIS MBISS GCHG KARABOUDJAN’S BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES – Ateş won Best of Breed at Westminster in 2017 & 2018. She was the #1 Anatolian in 2016, & #1 female in 2017, with numerous group placements. Ateş is also the very 1st Anatolian in the history of the breed to be awarded an AKC Best in Show on November 3, 2018.

We are very happy to have a littermate to this outstanding Anatolian here!
