Titan
“The Macedonian God”

Sire: Cimci
Dam: Alba
Whelped: 11/30/2015

Titan was imported from Skopje, Macedonia in early 2016. He comes from a long line of champions in the Macedonian show ring. He is registered with the Kennel Association of the Republic of Macedonia and the United Kennel Club (UKC). He is a big boy coming in at 30 in. tall. He is a wolf-iron gray in his coat color and he has an excellent conformation. He has very tight skin on his head and face as he contains the narrower, wolfier head that we are striving to breed into our dogs. Characteristic of the Sarplaninac breed standards, his temperament is that of being untrusting of strangers but not aggressive. He is coming along well with our sheep in his training as a livestock guardian and he has great potential to eventually take over Ludo’s role some day and become the lead dog in our LGD program.

Black Swamp Myah
“The Queen Bee”

Sire: Misty Mountain’s Simba
Dam: Black Swamp Nala
Whelped: 07/12/2014
OFA Hip Rating: Good
OFA Elbow Rating: Normal

Myah is the daughter of Black Swamp Nala and granddaughter of Ludo of Kef and Elsa Balkan Mountain. Measuring 24 in. tall in height and 102 lbs. in weight Myah is not as large as our other dogs but does fall well within the traditional standard for this breed. She has a very friendly, outgoing temperament with all people though with dogs she is a very dominant alpha female. Being the granddaughter of Ludo, the instinct to protect the flock seems to run very strong in her as she is both a fierce livestock guard as well as a gentle nurturer of all of our spring lambs. She has a stunning dark wolf-iron gray coat color also not unlike her grandfather. Myah’s conformation is flawless and her head is very proportionate to the rest of her body making her an exceptionally beautiful Sarplaninac.

Elsa Balkan Mountain
“The Serbian Snow Queen”

Sire: Arkan Pako
Dam: Bona Zlatni Stit
Whelped: 06/29/2012

Elsa was imported from Balkan Mountain Kennels of Mladenovac, Serbia shortly after we acquired Ludo. She is registered both with the UKC as well as the Kennel Club of Republic Serbia. Weighing in at about 120 lbs. and standing 26 in. tall, she also has a very healthy size for a female of this breed. Elsa has a very playful, friendly personality with all people and is extremely loyal to us; though with dogs, she is truly a very dominant, alpha female. Her coat color is a light gray/gold karabash and she is a dry mouth. Coming from very strong blood lines in the Serbian show ring, these supreme genetic lineages have paid off in the flawless beauty and conformation of this dog as she really is a superb specimen of the Sarplaninac breed.

Ludo od Kef
“The Boss”

Sire: Kerber
Dam: Gora od Kef
Whelped: 04/01/2010

Ludo was the first Sarplaninac that we had imported into the United States. He came from the legendary KEF Kennel of Kumanovo, Macedonia back in 2010. He is registered with both the UKC as well as the Kennel Association of the Republic of Macedonia. Coming just in at around 130 lbs. in weight and 28 in. tall in height, he has a very muscular, stocky build. Coming from authentic Eastern European working lines, he is a very loyal and protective guard dog and has to be watched around strangers with a close eye. Ludo is extremely gentle with children and family members and has made an excellent household companion over the years; he is also very gentle around our sheep and is a proven livestock guardian dog. He is a dark wolf-iron gray in his coat color and contains no white markings anywhere on his body. He has a very thick muzzle on his broad head and is a true representative of the old-school Macedonian look of this breed.
