Eureka Sammie June gave birth to 8 beautiful Maremma puppies, 5 boys and 3 girls, on January 19, 2022! All puppies from this litter have now gone off to their forever homes. We are planning for the birth of our next litter from Eureka Sammie June and Benson Ranch Giovane to occur sometime in January 2023.
Our prior litter completed PennHIP testing at 16 weeks old with great results. All 8 puppies scored at or better than the breed average. We try to be as transparent as possible with potential customers and have posted the PennHIP reports below.
PennHIP is completed on all our puppies to be able assure they go home without any genetic hip defects. This is very important to us after we unknowingly purchased a Maremma puppy born with already advanced hip dysplasia and osteoarthritis. We do not want any families to go through this heart break of seeing a puppy in pain. However, this does not mean your puppy will not develop hip or elbow dysplasia as a result of environmental circumstances after he/she leaves our farm. Some situations that can contribute to dysplasia and osteoarthritis down the road are feeding improper food for large breed puppies (i.e., too much or too little calcium and phosphorous), overfeeding, running on hard ground (e.g., concrete), and injuries.
