Could it be? Yes, it's true! This January we will be breeding Kyrie with our Champion sire, Leo, for the first time! Cross fingers with us that we will have a happy and healthy dam and litter of pupsters in March, everyone!
This, our first litter, will be a co-own with Tina and Lisa Barber of New Zion Shilohs. This means that if you would like to get on the list for a Kyrie/Leo pup, you will need to fill out the New Zion puppy application, which you can find here on the NZS site.
Above you'll see the collage of littermates and ancestors of Kyrie and Leo. We put together these collages because often pups will resemble their ancestors more than their parents! From left to right and top to bottom, you can see:
Row One: Acer, Leo's sire; Tucker, Kyrie's twin brother
Row Two: Chester, Kyrie's younger brother; Granddam Tang; Grandsire Grizz
Row Three: Scout, Kyrie's sire; Leo's littermate MC and littermate Nana
Row Four: Leo; Leo's dam Holly
Row Five: Kyrie; Grandsire Storm
Because Holly looks quite a bit like Kyrie, we expect quite a few brown sables with cream in this litter. Because Leo has reddish coloring and so does Kyrie's grandpa Storm, we may get some reddish pups in this litter, too! We have the chance for white/buff pups, and a small chance for solid blacks. We may even get a "Hobo" pup with markings like Kyrie...I am crossing my fingers!
We hope you're just as excited about this litter as we are!! Please join us in wishing luck to the happy couple on their upcoming "wedding" day! :)
