FYI- We will not have a new litter until Spring 2025. If you are interested in one of our Maremma Sheepdogs, now is the time. We still have two adolescent male Maremmas (Louie and Prince) available and ready to head to homes. Our waitlist is half-filled for our future litter. If you would like to be added, please email us at email@example.com.
Current litter: Eureka Sammie June (sire Benson Ranch Giovane) gave birth to her second litter on February 18, 2023. The final count was six males and two females. The puppies' pedigree is posted below. The font is small, so you will need to enlarge the page to read. The puppies completed PennHIP on June 14, 2023 and July 5, 2023 with good results (all better or right at average for the breed with no indications of hip dysplasia!).
Past litter: Eureka Sammie June gave birth to eight beautiful Maremma puppies, five boys and three girls, on January 19, 2022. All puppies from this litter went to their forever homes in the summer of 2022. The litter completed PennHIP testing at 16 weeks old with great results. All eight puppies scored at or better than the breed average with no indications of hip dysplasia. We try to be as transparent as possible with potential customers and have posted the puppies' PennHIP reports below.
PennHIP is completed on all our puppies to assure they go home without any genetic hip defects. This is very important to us after we unknowingly purchased a six month old Maremma 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 (e.g., too much or too little calcium and phosphorous and caloric rich food that promotes rapid growth), overfeeding, running on hard ground (e.g., concrete), jumping from platforms or other elevated spots, and injuries. We have read hours of research on feeding large breed puppies and are available to answer any questions you may have on the topic.
