New Dawn introduces new genetics on her sire's side to the United States. Her sire Kapar is owned by Onur and is from one of Onur's best male dogs. Dawn's dam is from Zile and her sire won best in show.
Dawn loves her does and is very bonded with them...and they with her. I'll often catch the does curled up, cuddled with Dawn.
The neatest thing is that the does not only trust Dawn, but respect her too.
You can't say that Dawn is not intense lol. She watched every move I made while I was taking pictures of her and her pups. One of her sons gave her a kiss which she didn't seem to notice because she was staring so intently at me and the camera lol.
All is happy in this pup's world.
Him and his chew toy...what else does he need?
These pups are exceptionally gorgeous. Every time I look at them my heart skips a beat.
I love the fact that the pups are raised in a secure environment that still allows them to absorb the sights and sounds of the farm, the livestock and the adult Kangals. This is an incredibly observant breed to begin with so for them to be immersed in all this is a blessing.
