Dee Hadorn's first Anatolian, Tess, came as a rescue. She was a Rusgar daughter;
she had never been with stock and was nearly five. She had been living in the
a backyard, alone. Although she was behind a chain link fence they had her on a
chain because she knew how to open the gate latch.
After Tess bit the next door neighbor in the face she came to live with Dee's Angoras instead of crossing the Rainbow Bridge. It was a big step for both Tess and Dee!
Dee's second Anatolian was a 7 month-old female who had been raised with sheep. Tess terrorized her, even though the introduction was through the fence. Hamstring injuries on Dee's goats began to appear within the first week and this dog was returned. (Although I believe that if this dog had been placed with goats with the correct level of aggression and internal strength for this pup, this pup may very well have been cured of this common problem in working pups.) The breeder paid shipping one way and Dee paid shipping the other.
Dee has 80 acres and knew one dog would not be able to handle the predators she had there - coyotes, bob cats, hawks and owls, stray dogs, and an occasional cougar. I had pups (from my Second Generation Anatolians) who were raised with goats by my "strictly working method" and a little older than "normal." When Dee called our phone call went very well.
In November of 1991, Dee visited me at my Ranch near Austin, Texas. The following is Dee's story regarding Conard's Golden Girl (Brandy).
Conard's Golden Girl (Brandy) - Daughter of Ebeling's Kasif (Casy) and
Swan Acres Kavi Manzara (Zara)
Brandy is an incredible working Anatolian who takes her job of guarding her goats seriously.
She is a serious working dog with the aloof personality highly desired in Anatolians in a real world working situation.
Brandy was raised using Erick's STRICTLY WORKING METHOD, is closely bonded to her goats, completely loyal to Dee, and is extremely distrustful of any other humans. Like many good Anatolians off territory, she remains aloof but polite to others present.
Brandy is an exceptionally "tuff" Anatolian with amazing guardian ability. She loves her animal charges and is especially wonderful with young stock. Brandy is fearless, aggressive, and unrelenting with predators and has great independent decision making ability.
