Devil Goat Artemis has been bred via transcervical insemination to Pastore Transumante Bartolo! In about a month we will go in for a confirmation of pregnancy.
We are extremely excited about this breeding. Artemis is a phenomenal guardian – she has the looks, personality and proven guard experience. She is MSCA registered, and OFA hip and eye tested. Bartolo is an MSCA registered Italian import from the impeccable Pastore Transumante champion lines. He is OFA hip, elbow, knee and eye tested and has several proven litters of pups now working on farms across the country. Bartolo was previously bred to Artemis’ full littermate sister and the puppies were outstanding, which is a great indication of the quality of puppies expected from this litter.
We are currently taking applications for puppies. You can also download the pdf and email it to us. We will continue our waiting list in order of approved applications and when pregnancy confirmation is received we will let everyone know. Once puppies are on the ground they will be evaluated and the appropriate number of people on the waiting list will be contacted.
Puppies will be fully assessed again at 7 weeks of age for conformation and quality. At that time we will make detailed arrangements. It is likely the puppies will be ready for new homes around Thanksgiving or in the following few weeks. Puppies will come with preliminary vaccinations, microchips and MSCA limited registration applications.
For more information about the breeding, please see our original post with more details.
Our breeding program is described on our website as well, but please contact us with any questions you may have.
We will update again when pregnancy is confirmed.
