Welcome to Jughandle Anatolian Shepherds.
We will have Anatolian Shepherd Dog puppies for sale as livestock guardians (LGD), show prospects and companions, in 2015. Please see the above "Upcoming Litters" link.
We are members of the Anatolian Shepherd Dog Club of America (ASDCA) and are ASDCA Code of Ethics Breeders. We honor the commitment we made when we signed the Code or Ethics and will not breed a dog that has failed health testing! We are located in Delaware County, New York, outside of the Village of Walton. Our Anatolian Shepherds are outside in open fenced areas on 15+ acres most of the time. They guard us, our property, my daughter's Tibetan Spaniel, and our chickens with vigor and against all comers. We have never lost a chicken to predators.
We do show our dogs in AKC shows, but we do not "live" to show. We only breed when we would like to retain a puppy from a particular litter for ourselves and if we are also able to potentially keep every puppy we produce rather than see it go to an inappropriate home. We are very particular about who we consider to be potential owners of our puppies and screen carefully. The very first requirement we have is a large, securely fenced area that the puppy/dog will have access to. This is a must due to the fact Anatolian Shepherds will expand territory. A securely fenced area keeps the puppy/dog safe and your neighbors happy. Also, an Anatolian Shepherd is not a breed that can receive adequate exercise on the end of a leash. We have other requirements but it begins with a large securely fenced area.
Any dog we breed will have their hips OFA certified free of hip dysplasia and normal thyroid panels completed before they are used for breeding. These requirements surpass those of the ASDCA Code of Ethics for Breeders! We have begun submitting elbow x-rays to the OFA to be certified free of elbow dysplasia. We guarantee our puppies against congenital defects and will offer support for the lifetime of any puppy we sell.
If you are a broker, dealer, puppy miller, pet shop owner, for profit dog breeder, a breeder who wants to breed designer dogs or mixed breeds or any sort (even LGDs!!!), a Boz Kangal breeder, or any other sort of middleman for any of the above: DO NOT BOTHER CALLING!
