This is Coco, a Caucasian found wandering the streets of Dubai, Unite Arab Emirates. A rescue had her and shipped her to NYC on September 14. She was picked up by Karen L. (THANK-YOU SOOO MUCH!) and eventually shipped to her new home in Atlanta. Thanks to the many kind folks who donated to cover Coco's shipping expenses! :)
Spring at ThunderHawk!
Top photo is my Forever Dog, Chakotey, posing near the carved "ThunderHawk" at the front of the property. At 8+ years of age, Chakotey's head and shoulders can still clear the top of a 6' fence from a standstill-- proof of ThunderHawk's success in selecting for better hips. Bottom photo is 4-month-old Greek import, Batu (Batu Khan was Gingas Khan's son).
Because of our 100% money-back written lifetime guarantee on genetic health and temperament, ThunderHawk has been the North American Top Breeder of the Caucasian Ovcharka since the late 1990's. Because ThunderHawk pups are in such high demand, our website gets over 2500 hits per month. If everyone who had questions called, I would never get anything accomplished. So, I wrote a book --the first book ever written on this ancient breed-- containing everything I know about the Caucasian. It answers every question I have ever been asked. Most important, unlike many other breed books, it tells you all the negatives as well as the positives and thus helps you make an educated decision on whether this breed is right for you. So, if you have questions about the breed that are not answered in the 22 pages of information on the website, then order the book. It is a small investment compared to the heartache and tragedy of a poor breed-owner match.
Import Pups Settling In
When the girls arrived it was the end of March but winter still had a death-grip on Ontario. Here they are exploring the large compound around the house and barn.
Importing New Breeding Stock
After I lost Jade as a breeder, I decided to import some new breeding stock. Importing from Russia was not an option for humanitarian reasons: their treatment of gays and the invasion of Crimea set the country back 50 years -- this is not an economy I want to support with my hard-earned dollars. So I looked elsewhere. My first two girls are breath-takingly beautiful and have stirling temperaments. It was such a nightmare getting them, however, that I cannot support either the breeder or the country of import. Suffice it to say I paid twice the going rate for puppies and twice that in shippjng fees. My second set of imports was almost as bad, but that is another post. So here are my two gorgeous new prospective dams at 4.5 months old. "Conquista" is the fighter and "Cassiopeia" is the lover! :)
