Tribocie Puck

After searching for many months for the perfect male dog here in the states, we decided to import instead. Most of the males here in the US lacked the substance we desired. Our search for the perfect male lead us to Tribocie Anatolian Shepherds in Australia, where we obtained a fabulous male pup named Puck. He was everything we had been looking for. He arrived here in July of 2015, at three months old.  In October of 2015, we attended the Anatolian Shepherd National Specialty in Maryland, Pucks first show. He won winners dog that day, at just 6 months of age, beating out mature dogs. This was confirmation of what we already knew, Puck was a stellar pup! He returned back to farm and continued his goat guarding duties. He is a wonderful full time guardian of small Nigerian Dwarf goats. Throughout 2016, Puck attended 7 shows and obtained his championship title.  In October of 2016, the Anatolian National Specialty came up again, this time in California. After much thought, we decided to make the 3,000 mile drive and give Puck a chance to compete against major competition. After six days of traveling we arrived. There were 88 total entries, the largest ever for the National. Puck won Best of Breed at only 19 months old! Making him the youngest male to ever win!!! He beat out champions, grand champions and specials. This big win skyrocketed Puck to the top, placing him as the number two AKC ranked Anatolian in the US after just 8 shows. What a dog!!! Puck is everything we look for in breed character. Calm, aloof, confident and he is a gifted mover. He possesses proper temperament both on and off farm.  We look forward to his off-spring in 2017
