On Friday, 9/11/2020, Ravine gave birth to her second litter of puppies. She started at 6:43A.M. and kept going slow and steady until 8:11 P.M. when her 13th pup was born. Copying Mesa with 10 females and 3 males. One of her smaller female pups was born with meconium staining, and must have aspirated some. She did well until midway through the night when she started fading. So, we have 9 females and 3 males for an even dozen. All the pups and Ravine are doing very well, gaining weight, and she is being an excellent mom so far.
Ravine is our 2017 clear sable female who came from Prairie Creek Shepherds in Wyoming. She has been a wonderful dog from the moment we first saw her. She is a fabulous companion, traveler, and friend. She loves every person she meets. While she has plenty of energy to run around and play on the farm, she’ll immediately calm down, and is the perfect house dog. Our Livestock Guardian Dogs learned to watch the sky for aerial predators from Ravine.
Ravine has been tested clear on the Embark Dog Panel. She has not had her hips scored.
