This litter has ARRIVED.

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.

 

 

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.

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.
