About This Litter: (F-2)

Why this Breeding?:  The first reason to breed this is to get a Quentin pup. Why? Because i need the genes of Quentin and Mr Q. Which is also the Saigon genes too. Quentin is a good enough male to be a keeper to help keep size in our dogs. Giant and large is 'recessive' and is very hard to keep. This would be a nice litter for the Vallecito and Fennario kennels to grab up a nice pup to keep for thier lines when they loose girth/size/bone.

Temperament: Ash is one of the best temperaments of any of my dogs. Though she comes from some questionable background, those lines are all but gone, keeping only the best as she is an F-4 out of those unknown lines. We do know that Labrador, Siberian and Staffordshire are in those lines way back there through the female lines: Dorian, Teegan; Shenanigan, Princesess, making these pups F-5's off the moms side. Three of these dogs are service dogs and i am possitive Ash will be going to a service dog home one day.
   Quentin is a bit standoffish as is Ash, so pups should also be a bit standoffish. Mature, Non hyper. watchers with brains. The English Mastiff is not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to intellegence, but with this being an F-2 off Mr Q side (sires) we should get some good temperaments. So you will have 1/4 Mastiff in these pups. I will very likely be keeping a female out of this litter.
  So look for good guard dog quality, standoffish of folks until the pup gets to know the person. Socialize young pups at an early age. Train your pups to accept strangers with chicken pieces or even kibbles as these guys will like food.  They may guard their food bowls from other dogs and cats?  There is no aggression in any of these lines, but large dogs may grow up with a bigger than you' attitude if you or the environment pushes them that way. I will NOT be responsible for a large dog being an issue if you take a pup so train the pup to obey you. Teach the dog commands like down stay, sit, go, come etc. Special large dog contract.

Size: from 150 - 200 lbs
Ears: down
Feet: large
Head: extra large
Dire wolf: no, ears are down. Coats will be short / medium with long hair on shoulders and along the back.
Colors: dark black tips of ears, tails, legs, skin. Body will be a light silver or cream or light gold.
Health: I have no issues with either Quentin or Ash, none that i know of in the mastiff lines either, so i will say you will have worms as pups but no other issues. pups should reach 10 - 12 yrs of age, maybe older.

4-4-2020:  Does not appear to be pregnant. Guess Quentin is sterile.

About This Litter:

I am hoping to get the red genes out of my lines.  Ashly has some red in her. Going to get up ears and keep the bone thickness, i hope. All pups will be black when born and will sport large heads and no necks. I will be keeping the longest pups with the shortest tails no matter what colors they are. I still do not care about ear set, as you know that is fixable in one generation. I want large feet and large heads but i can maybe sacrifice that for long pups? Dont know as of yet. These puppies will continue to grow and fill out until they are 3 years old. Care must be taken to avoid over exhurting young pups. I also want to know if any dogs get panosteitus, or limping in their undeveloped bones. We should not have that in these pups, but i am curious.There is no guarentee on your pup contracting pano. Feed pups very well. Up their calcium. give vitamins. Watch weight gain so that pup gains equally. Spirts of weight gain is when pano will develop, then go away. All pano will go away by 1 yr old if they get any.
Weight at maturity: 108-130?     One or two may be tall dogs with thinner bones.    giants?
Ears: all ears up
Coats: Dark brindling/Sables, medium length. full in winter, shedding all of the undercoat out in the spring/summer. All pups will be black at birth with some white spottings. Silver and Gold sables with Dark markings on ears, tails, eye liner. Dark skin.
Conformation: Most will be thick, girthy. A few will be thinner than i like. heads will be large. necks short.
Eyes: light amber to light brown/orange
Temperaments: Standoffish, Mellow, some will be friendly but most will not. Some will be more talkative. Some velcro. pay attention to notes on each pup.
Character: Most will be standoffish, thinkers, NOT like normal dogs. They do NOT want to go to the dog park. They will accept pack animals within your home just fine. cats, mice, rats, etc.. they wont care. What ever you want is good to them. They want to please you and are a lot like autistic children. YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THIS.. they are thinkers and want to OBSERVE not participate. Velcro enough. Will not wander. No seperation anxioty. No fear of loud noises. Most of the pups will be of a mature nature. One or two might be happy go lucky dogs that do not mind the dog park? We shall see.. Most AA's dont want to 'play' with other dogs, it is beneath them...

9-15-19:  This is an F-3 litter off the moms side and an F-4 off the dads side with a double Boss in four generations.
I had a feeling this would be a fantastic litter and i am right. All pups in this litter should be at a very high price... MY GIFT TO YOU....I am not selling them for 6 k a piece!
The temperament on each of these pups is right on the money. You can not get a better pup than these! I can not wait to watch them grow up. If you want a really nice pup. Keep an eye on this litter. Any of them .. All should be fantastic. Not giants, but a very nice size for the public.  All pups were great !

1-7-19 giant genes?. Reminds me of Blossom. Large bones. a lot of loose skin.
  She is a dark black tipped silver and gold sable. No other pup in the litter was this large or girthy with lots of loose skin to grow into. I am thinking she might reach 150 which i have never had a female this close to the dire wolf measurements in girth, so we keep her.

 Is in with Sela and is learning to talk back. Last one out of the den. More standoffish than others when a pup. coming up to me now and is fine.

5-3-19:  Ashley is a short girthy thick boned female out of Dorian and a Double Boss pup.

She is standoffish but mellow. Took her about 8 months to figure me out. Doesnt care for any kind of punishment, even mean growling words. Thought everything in life was about her until she finally matured. Now she understands there are others that get scorned and it is not all about her.

She is a good dog and never gets into any trouble. She is super quiet, never barks. Standoffish, no prey drive. Does not go up to strangers as of this date 5-21-19
