About This Litter: (F-2)

Why Mulan?  I am looking for the blackest skin i can get (pigmentation) with Dark markings on legs, tail, ears, muzzles and dark lips/nose/eye markings and no white spotting. Also keeping Girth and size of the Dire Wolf.
In Temperament i want to mix the lovability and shyness of the English Mastiff with the Sterness and Boldness of the Anatolian. To continue Consistancy and stability in these line.
Health:  great on both parents. Q-lenna has health issues of a large dog so doesnt like to get picked up and cant handle desert heat. Must cool down in large tubs of water or creek. Mulan is a picky eater but Qlenna loves food.
Pups from these two: Some long and skinny and tall off the Irish Wolfhound side. Mulan throws small tall leggy pups and Q-lenna girthy pups with short stocky legs.
Size at maturity: 130-150 lbs. I shall keep the girthiest female.
Ears: most will try to go up. Small thin pups will have up ears. Large pups will have drop ears.
Tails: Short and thick. Some med longish
Bones: Some thinner than i like, some will be a nice heavy size. Pups will be heavier than they appear.
Coats: Some will me kind of short and some will be longish. All pups coats will lighten up as they mature and should be a cream with black points. As they get older some will be silver with black points. Should have a dire wolf texture to the coat with a shoulder mane. Most will look like Mulan only girthier. Coats will continue to grow as they mature.
Muzzles: med in length, girthy black and some pups will have some hairs on muzzle but not too much. Most will have clean muzzles.
Temperament: Very nice. Q-Leanna throws wonderful loving kind easy going pups and Mulan throws highly intellectual smart pups. If they have any happy energy it wont be for very long if they are heavy pups. The thinner the pup, the more energetic. These pups will make EXCELLENT STABILITY DOGS. Do not get too large or too heavy of a pup for service work as most folks do NOT care for service dogs in public. A service dog should be invisable.
The larger the dog, the slower the dog and lazier. The thinner the dog the more energetic.

Smarter than blue pup, more of a thinker. Takes his time to process sounds and smells and what is going on around him. Sometimes the smart ones are too smart. Might reach 120 lbs. I think he will be a looker. I rather like the dark colored dogs. Eyes would stand out. Strong determined pup at this age. Solid Black?

(Too playful for me.)

About This Litter:

Temperaments: 8-10  EXTREAMILY loving and kind but on the leary side. Very SLOW TO MATURE. Very Protective of their dinner bowls against other animals, not humans. One or two might be bold pups. Not velcro. They will roam but not far. The thing about these pups is that they are BABIES for a long time. They are unsure of the world and will run and hide until it is safe or until you baby them and show them it is ok. They will be mature at about 2 or 3 in their emotions but until then they will be like autistic kids. Most of these pups will take on the Am Alsatian Temperaments and will do better as the German Shepherd comes out. Large protective males MUST BE NUETERED at 8 or 9 months or you can not have one. I do not know if we will have such a pup in this litter as the AA is doubled and therefore over powering the Mastiff and IW in the mom.
Why breed this? What am i looking for?:  As you know i kept 3 and 4 of the best pups out of Mr Q x Saigon. The reason is that these English Mastiff outcrosses are the best dogs in the world!  I am not exagerating. Everyone that comes to visit loves them. They are VERY huggable and sweet, but they are shy. So i am taking the best pups in this litter that love to hug and are mellow. The AA got too hyper and way too much GSD in the lines. What i did was HIGHLY CONCENTRATE the AA lines and now outcrossing to get highbred Vigor (health) and keeping the sweetest of all plus laid back. We will be selling all PREY driven pups. Any pups that play fetch will be sold. Any pups that growl at the bowl, will be sold. Will there be any?  We shall see. Qleanna will not walk for more than 1/4 of a mile. To the corner of the block and back. That is all. They are NOT working dogs. They will get along with all other animals and kids and people.

Ears: funny and semi up
Eyes: light brown or dark yellowish
Coats: Dire Wolf coats. Dark when born, lightning up as they grow. Black faces/Muzzles. Black Skin with light hairs. Some Brindles but mostly sables.
Weights: 150+
Height: small mastiffs
Heads: very large big heads.
These pups will be bred into all future Am Alsatians for the next 5 or 10 years. The Back bone of the breed.

Q-Leanna Notes:


12-11-18:  She has become a very indoor loving, cautious pup. She was bred or rather tied' with a male but it did not take. I think we used Capone. No matter, large dogs usually do not breed until they are in a second heat or even third. She is a loving, kind soul. She does not want to do anything wrong. Training her one must use a very soft loving way about them and food will always work! She sleeps in a large wire crate in the walk in closet in my bedroom and doesnt like to be without me, though she has been left in the room with a baby gate for hours alone. She does tear up blankets or takes the stuffing out of stuff, but once you tell her not to, she will not do it again if you are on top of it. All one has to do is pay attention and talk to her. There is no need to raise your voice much with these pups. They do NOT like confrontation and will go hide if they think you are mad or angry at them. Like elephants they do not forget.

She was the boldest and most loving pup of the litter.

12-20-19 Qleanna is still leary of all strangers. She loves food and will get up into the van if you throw in a chicken leg. She can eat up to 10 lbs of chicken in 15 min.

When strangers come to our place, she waits until they sit down and then she is the first one over, wagging her tail for love and pets. She LOVES to be hugged and talked to. She sits and lays her head in your lap.
At first when i go to see her, she jumps up in the air about 3 times, then wags her entire hind end and runs about 8 ft, then waits there. Thats it. I go into the kennel and sit down and she will come and hug me and stay as long as i am sitting there.
   She asks to go inside because she likes to be in the house with me. She has the closet of my bedroom as her own space. It is filled with rugs and blankets, a large pot of water and some bones. She stays there all day. I take her outside and let her walk around for about 20 min, then she comes back inside to sleep and eat again. She goes out 4 times a day.
   She doesnt like to be with the other dogs, though she likes them. They are too crazy for her. She doesnt like hyperness, nor does she like to be confronted by other dogs. She likes humans best. She will tolerate one dog at a time for about 20 min. She does not play with them.
She is ok walking around the stores and shops as she is not a crazy dog. She walks right beside me as a mobility dog. It is very easy for her to wait and support me. She will NOT go down stairs or on an esculator.
