All plans are subject to change seeing as timing and logistics make concrete plans impossible. However, this information is as accurate and up to date as I have available.
This is more line-bred than most of our litters will be and it's likely puppies will look strongly like both parents - moderate to rustic. Tabiri is positive for autoimmune thyroiditis but this is completely controlled with medication. Amidi is clear of thyroid issues. It is possible the this pairing will produce particolor puppies. As Tabiri does not have a three-generation pedigree, this litter will not be eligible to show in AKC but is eligible for UKC conformation and all other AKC sports.
There are still spots on this interest list.
Since I have received enough interest, I will breed Gem a second time in 2023. I have talked with both stud dog owners and they have agreed to this pairing. I will be doing a dual sired breeding for this litter. N'KouKou is a lovely import from France. With this pairing, I'm looking to improve on Gem's size and substance.
Yah Yah is an import from Mali, which is one of the breed's countries of origin. He is a stunning mover and has good length of leg in comparison to Gem.
A dual sired litter potentially allows for more genetic diversity with fewer litters and as both dogs are lovely examples of the breed and have not been bred before, I feel lit important that they contribute to the gene pool. With dual sired litter there is a chance that all the puppies will be sired by one stud and not the other.
The puppies sired by N'KouKou with three generation pedigree will be registered with AKC and UKC and can be shown in both. The puppies sired by Yah Yah will be registered with FCI and UKC. They can be shown in UKC, do all performance events aside from AKC events (that includes ASFA, LGRA, NOTRA, and more) and they can be shown in IABCA.
There are still some spots on this interest list.
Late 2023/Early 2024
We bred Anubi (Naram-Sin du Haras de Crouz) to Amalu (Ahimana Amalu) in the beginning of 2023. The breeding took, but unfortunately Amalu had vaginitis, which caused her to resorb the litter. Our reproductive vet assures us this was simply bad luck, so we will try the breeding again at the end of 2023. Amalu only cycles every 10-12 months, so the wait it longer than we would prefer.
This litter will be eligible to do AKC performance sports and UKC conformation, but not AKC conformation. I expect level headed, calm puppies with an excellent work ethic from this pairing.
There are limited slots on this list available to breed fanciers and preservation breeders
Late 2024/Eary 2025
In 2024 we plan to breed Amastan (Xanadu Farms Amastan) to Amalu (Ahimana Amalu). This litter will be eligible to do UKC conformation, all performance venues aside from AKC, and show in IABCA. I expect level headed, calm puppies with an excellent work ethic from this pairing.
There are potential spots open on this interest list.
