Good News

One of the kennel owners e-mailed me late last night and sent me her puppy questionnaire and some other information on her feeding program, which is a raw diet. Now this is something I know very little about, and there is tons of research and articles out there. It's intimidating. If you're interested in feeding a raw diet (for health reasons, primarily) stay tuned. I will update this site with info and links as I learn more about it. After reading a few articles about the nutritional failings of commercial pet food, and all the scraps that go into it, you may want to start introducing raw foods into your own dog's diet. Happily, it seems that I may have the opportunity to buy a pup from this litter. But that's jumping the gun. I could have a baby Savage by the middle of January. THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO!

Still Searching

The latest breeder I contacted informed me (after weeks!) that their only available blue male was evaluated as show-potential. Good for them. Disappointing for me. After about a week of moping around, I jumped back into the search for Savage. Tonight I e-mailed a kennel in Iowa and another in Indiana. Both their upcoming and current (respectively) litters are sired by the same male, one I've become semi-familiar with through the internet. The first kennel's litter is due in January, the second's was born November 17th. Hope their responses are quick!!
