DireWolf Dog Future Litters

 

 

The 31 Flavors Litter

This match has bred: January 12, 2020.

Puppies expected around the second week of March.

If you are interested in this litter, please complete our puppy adoption questionnaire.

 

This match will produce tall dogs standing 30 - 31 inches tall at the shoulders as adults. Males should weigh close to 115 - 120 lbs and females should reach 100 - 110 lbs. These dogs will not be as muscular or broad in structure as we like, but more thin in frame. The puppies from this litter will either be light silver wolf gray with black masks like Shennara or white like Triton. No other color combinations are expected. All of the puppies will have short double coats with some having longer hair on the shoulders and tail. Eyes will range in color from brown to yellow and ears will tend to rise, with some rising slower than others. Tails will lie flat and be short in length. Statistically, 75% of the puppies will show furnishings (longer hair on the muzzle), but only a few whisps will be noticeable as no puppy will show long hair. Puppies will be highly intelligent and very aware and responsive to their environment. These puppies should be highly trainable and learn new tasks with ease. Some puppies may be more reserved than others, which we will note. Puppies should be more on the serious side with a calm demeanor. One or two pups may show a bit more independence, but we will note this if we see it. All other puppies will be intuitive to human emotion and loving. These puppies will be thinking type puppies and easily able to problem solve. We may see some prey drive, if we do, we will note it in the puppies that show it. The inbreeding coefficient for this litter will be high at 30% on a five generation pedigree with five known genetic COIs. The ancestor loss coefficient will be low showing 70% on a four generation pedigree. This means that genetic diversity for this litter will be significantly lower and proportionately reflect the mother's ancestry. The puppies from this litter will be third generation (F3). Both parents have been DNA tested clear and not carriers for all 172 genetic diseases tested for by Embark veterinary. Health is guaranteed, as always. We hope to find a highly intelligent, calm female with dark pigmentation and no furnishings from this litter to help us move the breed forward. We are not looking to co-own any puppies from this litter. 

 

Puppies will range in price from $2700 to $3300 for pet quality and more for breeding/show quality.

The Princess Bride Litter

This match is due to be bred in March.

 

This match will produce heavy puppies with large feet and thick bone structure. The puppies from this litter may look very wolfie with both the black silver and light silver wolf coloring. Although many puppies may be heavy and thick in structure, they may not be as tall as some other litters. Sturdier than tall, in other words. Puppies should be highly intelligent with some puppies having more vocal tendencies and others having more energy. Some puppies may be quite bold, while others will be more reserved. We will note any divergence from the temperament standards, as usual. Puppies will show either a black silver wolf coat like Stanley, while the other puppies will show a light silver wolf gray coat like Darla. All ears will stand erect at an early age with some tails curling over the back and others lying straight. Some puppies will have amber colored eyes, while others will have yellow colored eyes. Some puppies may show white spotting on their chest and legs. All puppies will show medium to short length coats with seasonal shedding anticipated. No long coated pups or puppies with furnishings (long hair on the muzzle). Tails will all be short in length per standard. Some puppies will have a black mask, while others will show a wolf mask. All puppies will show deep black skin pigmentation. The inbreeding coefficient for this litter will be 8.98% on a five generation pedigree and four known genetic COIs with a 90% ancestor loss coefficient on a four generation pedigree. The puppies from this litter will be fourth generation (F4). Both parents have been DNA tested clear of over 172 genetic diseases identified in dogs from Embark Veterinary. Health is guaranteed, as always. We are not looking to co-own any puppies from this litter, but we will keep the best overall pup in temperament from this litter to futher the lines.

 

Puppies will range in price from $2700 to $3300 for pet quality and more for breeding/show quality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the coming years, we will be working diligently to decrease the inbreeding coefficient within the American Alsatian dog breed overall.  This can only be accomplished by adding crossbred lines and population to our breed.  Within our litters here at DireWolf Dogs of Vallecito, LLC, we will be working to consistently attain an inbreeding coefficient of no more than .07 (7%) using a 5 generation pedigree.  Therefore, we will share each litter's inbreeding coefficient with you as we work on this over the coming years.  It is a long term project that will take time, but we are dedicated to accomplishing this for the diversity needed in the breed.

We are also interested in increasing the ancestor loss coefficient.  This is an indication of the percentage of different parents within a certain number of generations.  We would like to keep a 100% (or 1) diverse parentage (ancestor loss coefficient) in the first three generations and at least a 90% (or .9) ancestor loss coefficient in the first four generations. 

 

With the combination of a low inbreeding coefficient and a high ancestor loss coefficient, we can ensure that the American Alsatian dog will be healthy and vibrant for many years to come without breeding too close and limiting the health in our strongbred lines.
