Our female Akbash livestock protection dog Luv’s Girl, gave birth to seven pups a week ago. We’ve been trying to leave the pups alone, but it’s hard to do. They are round and growing, and all is well.
The sire, or sires, are Central Asian Ovcharka. Rant, and his nephew, Mikey (an Ovcharka/Akbash cross).
The dark pups will probably grow up to be light tan or even reddish, like Mikey, shown below.
