We are excited to announce the arrival of Kota’s new litter! You can reserve your pick and see additional details here on the Kota X Finn Litter Page. The red heat lamp makes a good photo impossible, so that will be coming. All the pups are currently liver and white. Over the next seven weeks, their white coloring will change from white to white ticked or roan. Liver patches and markings will remain but can have some roan come into the solid liver color.
We are excited to announce that Kota is expecting a litter within the next 2-3 weeks. I do not maintain a waiting list or callback list so each puppy pick is reserved first-come-first-served as soon as they are born.
We had her paired with the stud during her heat cycle but did not witness the tying. Without witnessing the breeding, estimating the due date is much more difficult and is based on her physical appearance thus the estimated 2-3 weeks. This timeline will be adjusted as she shows additional signs of progress and development.
AKC offers two registration types to control breeding options and the price varies between the two, but is the same for males and females. AKC Limited Registration (non-breeding) is $1,400 and AKC Full Registration (full breeding rights) is $2,400. The AKC Limited Registration can be changed to Full Registration in the future by paying the difference of $1,000. Deposits are $300.
Kota has great confirmation and very unusual facial marking. She has never produced puppies with similar coloration.
I grabbed hold of her and removed bundles of quills as quickly as possible to prevent her from driving any of them any deeper.
Is wasn’t until after I had removed dozens of quills from her nose, muzzle, tongue, mount & gums, and chin that I paused to snap a couple of pictures. She went into that porcupine with her mouth wide open and had the damage to prove it. No other dogs suffered the same fate and we avoided Kota’s loop completely on our way out
