If you are on our waiting list and are interested in a puppy from this litter, please email us.

 

We anticipate that this match will produce dogs ranging in size between 80 to 115 pounds and heights between 25 to 28 inches tall. Elwin is a Malamute/Samoyed mix with known ancestry and is in no way related to the American Alsatian. Kerberos is a third generation American Alsatian with Akita and Malamute in his background. For this reason, we will see a large variety of temperaments ranging from more stubborn as Elwin is to more supple and malleable as Kerberos is. We expect to see puppies with great memories and a keen intelligence as both dogs possess this. The biggest challenges in these puppies may be an overly friendly, always happy and in your face pushiness as well as extreme stubbornness and unwillingness to comply with rules. We highly recommend that families interested in this litter be experienced dog owners with successful dog training experience. These puppies may push your buttons and get into mischief if not trained at a young age to respect human authority.  With that being said, this match should see puppies ranging in weight from 90 to 120 pounds with heights around 25 to 29 inches. Tails will likely curl up and over the back and some puppies may have excessive plush coats and shed profusely twice a year. All ears will rise early. We do not expect to see any white puppies in this litter as it is a recessive trait, but should see gold and silver wolf gray, with a possibility of black/white due to Elwin's ancestry. We will also see black masks as well as white-spotted masks. Eyes will range from dark brown to amber in color. Feet will be small and tails can be short or long. We may see some excessive white spotting in this litter with white socks, pink paw pads, white toenails, white chests and white tipped tails. We will be looking for that one puppy with as many qualities toward the American Alsatian temperament, highly slanted eyes, and white (if possible). Temperament does trump color, but in this case, eye slant is very important as it is a very difficult trait to achieve in the domesticated dog and Elwin possesses it. Inbreeding coefficient is 0% and ancestry loss coefficient is 100%. Health is guaranteed, as always. We will be keeping one male pup from this litter. We are not looking to co-own any puppies from this litter. This is the only litter for Elwin and therefore this litter will not be repeated. Elwin will be up for sale after this litter, if you are interested in providing this beautiful girl a forever home, please email us

 

Puppies will range in price from $2500 to $3000 for pet quality and that one male pup we must keep will not be for sale.

If you are on our waiting list and are interested in a puppy from this litter, please email us.

 

We anticipate that this match will produce dogs ranging in size between 80 to 115 pounds and heights between 25 to 28 inches tall. Puppies will be extremely smart and willing to please. They will be on the confident side and will not take much correction to learn what not to do. Some puppies may have some extra working behaviors and desires. Puppies with more energetic needs will be sold. All puppies will have erect ears. Coat colors will range from gold sable to silver wolf gray coloring with some possibility of a combination of both gold and silver. We will have black masks and wolf masks in this litter with a possible white-spotted mask puppy. We will be looking to keep all females from this litter if the temperament is in compliance with our standards. We will see short and medium length coats. Puppies will have amber to yellow eyes. Some pups will have smaller feet. Some white spotting may be present, but some pups may have dark pigmentation showing no white spotting. The inbreeding coefficient for this match is 3.125% in five generations and the ancestor loss coefficient is 90% in four generations. Health is guaranteed, as always. We are not looking to co-own any puppies from this litter. This is the only litter for Lady Igraine and therefore this litter will not be repeated.

Saigon

Kerberos

 

This litter is CONFIRMED.

If you are on our waiting list and are interested in a puppy from this litter, please email us.

 

Half of this litter will be owned by Vallecito Alsatians, LLC and the other half of the litter will be owned by the Schwarz Kennels. We will clearly indicate which puppies from this breeding will be available through Vallecito Alsatians, LLC to those on our waiting list when the puppies are born. This match will show puppies that are sweet and loving with more submissive and serious type temperaments as well as some more outgoing and goofy type temperaments. Some puppies will have more energy to be close and affectionate, but prey and play drive should not be high. Erect ears are expected, but some puppies may have ears that struggle to rise or rise later than 6 months old. We expect to see silver wolf gray and gold wolf gray. Also, we could see some puppies with brindling on their legs as well as some facial hair thrown from the Irish Wolfhound line coming from Saigon's ancestry. Eyes should be amber to yellow in coloration. We will see both black masks and white spotted masks in this litter. Health is guaranteed as always. This match should produce pups around 90 to 115 pounds with heights around 26 to 30 inches tall. Saigon is from the Irish Wolfhound line, but she, herself, is only around 26 inches tall and her mother was also around 27 inches tall, so we should see average sizes unless she throws one or two pups that are a throw back to her Irish Wolfhound ancestry. The inbreeding coefficient for this match is 9.375% in five generations and the ancestor loss coefficient is 86.7% in four generations. We may keep an exceptional pup from this match if it presents itself, otherwise we will sell all of our puppies from this litter. This litter will likely not be repeated again, but check with the Schwarz Kennels for more information on any possible future litters with Saigon.

 

Puppies will range in price from $2500 - $3000 for pet quality and more for show/breeding quality puppies.

This match will produce large and incredibly sweet dogs. Puppies coming from this match will be extremely smart.  They will be quiet and loving; wanting to be with you. We should see pups that are willing to do what you ask, but may show more energy than our standards require. The puppies from these two may have some clownish puppy energy and some will be playful and less serious. Puppies should have low prey drives, but a few may be interested in play, such as chasing balls and playing tug. Some puppies will be more on the submissive side of things and will be more sensitive in their emotions. Erect ears are expected, with some rising very slowly. Medium coats are expected. We will see silver wolf gray, gold wolf gray and black and cream coloring with black masks and white-spotted masks. Eyes will be amber brown to yellow.  Pups should reach 90 to 110 pounds and stand 26 to 28 inches in height. Tails will tend to lie flat unless excited. The inbreeding coefficient for this breeding is 6.25% on a five generation pedigree and the ancestor loss coefficient is 93.3% on a four generation pedigree. Health is guaranteed, as always. We are not looking to co-own any puppies from this litter, but we will be keeping the best pups according to our standards in order to increase the breed's overall breeding population for long-term breed sustainability. This match may be repeated later this year.

 

Puppies will range in price from $2500 to $3000 for pet quality and more for breeding/show quality.

Merlin

 

This litter is no longer scheduled.

We have several puppies from Merlin from two different litters and will be looking to breed Elwin's puppy from the Kerberos litter to a pup from Merlin's lineage at a later date. 

 

In the coming years, we will be working diligently to decrease the inbreeding coefficient within the American Alsatian breed overall.  This can only be accomplished by adding crossbred lines and population to our breed.  Within our litters here at Vallecito Alsatians, we will be working to consistently attain an inbreeding coefficient of no more than .07 (7%) using a 5 generation pedigree.  Therefore, we will share each litter's inbreeding coefficient with you as we work on this over the coming years.  It is a long term project that will take time, but we are dedicated to accomplishing this for the diversity needed in the breed.  

 

If you are interested in reading more about our thoughts on inbreeding coefficients, please click here.  

 

We are also interested in increasing the ancestor loss coefficient.  This is an indication of the percentage of different parents within a certain number of generations.  We would like to keep a 100% (or 1) diverse parentage (ancestor loss coefficient) in the first three generations and at least a 90% (or .9) ancestor loss coefficient in the first four generations. 

 

With the combination of a low inbreeding coefficient and a high ancestor loss coefficient, we can ensure that the American Alsatian will be healthy and vibrant for many years to come without breeding too close and limiting the health in our strongbred lines. 

 

If you are interested in a puppy from Vallecito Alsatians, you must complete our

Puppy Adoption Questionnaire (currently closed) and follow up email interview, if needed.  Once approved, you can place a deposit down.

 

A $600 non-refundable deposit will hold a spot in line for our one of a kind dog breed.  Please email us if you have been officially approved and are interested in adding your deposit.
