SARPLANINA: A WORKING BREED
Several years ago, my husband and I bought a beautiful place in the Endless Mountain Region of Pennsylvania. We are located on top of a mountain with beautiful views. During this time I was away working for a few years in the Balkans (and then Iraq). However, I was able to bring back from the Balkans, 6 beautiful Sharplanina’s, with the help of many friends like Arsim, Safet and Xhavit, and our kennel was born.
I am retired (for a little while at least ) and now beinginning a new phase of my life dedicated to these wonderful animals. We hope to continue producing dogs that are of the highest quality and character as well as retaining and encouraging their instincts as flock/home guardian dogs. Our dogs, born in Balkan villages, maintain their strong instincts. At the same time we will show these dogs through ARBA and UKC, when possible, to establish them in America. We invite sheep, goat, and alpaca breeders to revisit our website often as we add more information and pictures about the Sharplanina guardians. We also invite anyone wishing to participate in a Sharplanina group to let us know so that along with some of our colleagues, we can start coordinating.
We do not yet train our dogs as livestock guardians (although this is a natural instinct), but with the assistance of some excellent neighbors, we can familiarize them with sheep and goats from a young age. (The above photo is NOT ours but choosen as a representation of the dogs in their native country doing their job).
