We are awaiting official confirmation now.

 

Brave unchartered waters for creatures unknown! We expect puppies from this ideal breeding to be large to extra large in size, standing 28 to 32 inches tall and weighing 100-130 lbs. All puppies will show silver wolf sable coats with medium to short coat lengths and black masks. All puppies will be high seasonal shedders, easily letting go of their fluffy undercoat twice a year when the weather changes. All ears will rise early with tails that lie flat. Some puppies will show no white spotting, while other puppies will show small amounts of white spotting. Half of the puppies will show a few longer whisps of hair near their mouth, called furnishings. All puppies will be highly intelligent. We anticipate that all puppies will be very close to American Alsatian dog temperament standards. We will note any divergence from the temperament standards, as usual. This is a highly genetically diverse match bringing two separate American Dirus dog lines together. The inbreeding coefficient for this litter will be 1.95% on a five generation pedigree and six known genetic COIs with a 98.67% ancestor loss coefficient on a four generation pedigree. The puppies from this litter will be fourth generation (F4) American Dirus dogs. Both parents have been DNA tested clear of over 172 genetic diseases identified in dogs from Embark Veterinary and have high immune diversity. Health is guaranteed, as always. This is a repeat breeding. Learn more about the first litter of puppies from this match by going to the Nautical Litter. We are not looking to co-own any puppies from this litter nor are we planning on keeping any puppies from this litter to further the lines, but we will consider an exceptional extra large puppy without furnishings from this litter if one should arise.

 

Puppies will range in price from $3500 to $4800 for pet quality and more for breeding/show quality.

We expect puppies from this ideal breeding to be large to extra large in size, standing 27 to 30 inches tall and weighing 100-120 lbs. Half of the puppies will show silver wolf sable coats, while the other half will show gold. All puppies will have medium to short coat lengths and black masks. All puppies will be high seasonal shedders, easily letting go of their fluffy undercoat twice a year when the weather changes. All ears will rise early with tails that lie flat. Some puppies will show no white spotting, while other puppies will show small to large amounts of white spotting. All puppies will be highly intelligent and sweet with an emotional intelligence that lends itself to an intuitive ability to understand humans. We anticipate that all puppies will be very close to American Dirus dog temperament standards. We will note any divergence from the temperament standards, as usual. This is a highly genetically diverse match bringing two separate American Dirus dog lines together. The inbreeding coefficient for this litter will be 2.93% on a five generation pedigree and six known genetic COIs with a 90% ancestor loss coefficient on a four generation pedigree. The puppies from this litter will be fourth generation (F4) American Dirus dogs. Both parents have been DNA tested clear of over 172 genetic diseases identified in dogs from Embark Veterinary and have high immune diversity. Health is guaranteed, as always. We are not looking to co-own any puppies from this litter, but we must keep at least one exceptional extra large puppy from this litter to further the lines.

Friendly Giants Litter

 

How's the weather up there? These puppies are going to be huge! Extra-large to giant-sized puppies standing 29 - 32 inches tall at the shoulders and weighing from 110 - 170 lbs! Not only will these puppies be tall, but they will also be heavy muscled and thick in bone structure. A truly dire wolf-sized litter! about half of the puppies will be fawn colored (like Bazooka) and the other half of the litter will be wolf sable. Both gold and silvers are expected. All puppies will show black masks. We do not expect the ears to rise, although some puppies may surprise us. Tails will be short and hang down. All puppies will have heavy-shedding double coats that thicken in the winter and shed completely in the summer. Massive head sizes and dark to amber colored eyes are expected. These puppies will be low energy and low play/prey drive. Some may even be on the lazy side of life. We expect all puppies will be sweet-natured and love to snuggle and be close.  Temperament is expected to be exceptional per American Dirus standards. We will note any deviations from the temperament standards should they arise. There are some expected inherited issues that may be seen coming from the English Mastiff addition, so please take note and make sure you understand the issues and are prepared to deal with them should they arise. Bazooka possesses a typical English Mastiff inherited food addiction. As a puppy, he had a tendency to compulsively overeat. Please read his webpage linked on his picture above for more information on this. If you choose a puppy from this litter, you MUST ration food for your puppy and never free feed. Also, thick drop ears may develop chronic ear infections. Both parents have been DNA tested clear for over 172 canine genetic diseases by Embark Veterinary and have high immune diversity. The inbreeding coefficient for this litter will be 3.13% on a five generation pedigree and six known genetic COIs with a 87% ancestor loss coefficient on a four generation pedigree. The puppies from this litter will be third generation (F3) American Dirus dogs. We are not looking to co-own any puppies from this litter, however, we must keep at least two puppies from this litter to further the lines.

Half of the litter will have black masks and the other half of the litter will show white masks (like Dreamer). Some puppies may have more energy than other puppies.

The inbreeding coefficient for this litter is 8.98% on a five generation pedigree and six known COIs with 90% ancestor loss coefficient on a four generation pedigree. The puppies from this litter will be fourth generation (F4) American Dirus dogs.

In the coming years, we will be working diligently to decrease the inbreeding coefficient within the American Dirus 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 Dirus dog will be healthy and vibrant for many years to come without breeding too close and limiting the health in our strongbred lines.
