My Third Generation Anatolian,
Lucky Hit's Tawny Shadow (Shadow)

In 2001 I bred Shadow to a wonderful male, Sakarya's Blazing Legend (Duke). I kept four of the litter of nine pups, three males and a female.

As of July 6, 2002, the female from Shadow's May 8, 2001, litter, Lucky Hit's Seven of Nine (Seven), was ranked 12th in the nation at the Breed Level by AKC.


Shadow guarding her goats - She is an excellent working livestock guardian

Shadow exhibited many traits I value in a working Anatolian at an early age. She is the highly valued aloof type Anatolian that I associate with the best working Anatolians. Shadow is incredibly intelligent and makes well thought out independent decisions regarding her working environment.

Shadow is fearless in her protection of her charges. For example, one day I watched Shadow and a male I owned take on a dog pack that had decided to go after my goats. The pack had five dogs, four huskies and a pit bull.

Shadow reached the dog pack before the male by first clearing a four foot fence and then clearing a five 1/2 foot fence while running uphill! Without hesitation Shadow picked the most dominant dog and knocked him to the ground with such force that he yelped in pain and surprise and immediately ran away. Two of the remaining four dogs disappeared into the woods. Shadow immediately engaged with the nearest dog while my male delt with the last dog. She escorted the unlucky dog away from the property, allowing him to only walk with his head near the ground and his tail tucked between his legs. With all this action she had chased them off without incurring a single mark. I have never seen those dogs near my property again.

Shadow guarding goats while nursing pups
Shadow is a large aloof female with a strong attachment to goats, especially the kids. She has excellent mothering ability.

Shadow has great internal strength of will, demonstrates a high level of intelligence, and always seems to know exactly what to do.

Shadow is the dam of Lucky Hit's Seven of Nine, who is ranked the 12th dog in the nation at the Breed level on July 6, 2002. She also produced four AKC CHAMPIONS.

Pictured above on August 12, 2003,

The hairless spots show where its fangs pierced her leg.
There were a total of five Anatolians in the pasture,
including Shadow. The other four were Case, Tokat, Yahsi, and Seven.
Tokat had a severe injury to his front leg and had his side torn open by three claws.
Seven was hit in the rear end and had an injury there.
Yahsi and Case were uninjured.

The Anatolians severely injured the cougar before it made it over the pasture fence
so they dug under the fence and finished it off a short distance away in my
neighbor's section pasture. All the Anatolians remained on high alert for weeks afterwards!

Anatolians in the big pasture.
