Because our primary breeding selection criteria is designed to genetically concentrate the superior working behaviors and ability of working Turkish Anatolians, we believe our pups are best suited for individuals seeking an Anatolian with superior working ability rather than just a pet or companion Anatolian. It has been my experience, however, that Anatolians with superior working ability also can be superior home companion-guardians in the right setting.

Our Anatolians' genetic backgrounds concentrate the best working demeanor of the Anatolian with proven superior working behavior and ability. We raise all of our Anatolians in a real world guardian situation with a mixture of animals, including goats, llamas, geese, and horses. We are surrounded by a variety of predators, including coyotes, dog packs, cougars, fox, bob cats and the occasional two legged predator.

As a bonus to their great working ability, our Anatolian pups have excellent conformation! We have produced many AKC Champions and a number of our Anatolians have been ranked by AKC as the #1 AKC All Breed Anatolian, #1 AKC Breed Anatolian, awarded AKC Award of Merit and Best of Breed at the Anatolian National Specialty, Best of Breed at Westminister, #1 Owner Handled Anatolian, numerous Group One wins and Group placements. We are especially proud to have owned the AKC Number One Producing Male for 2009, 2011, and 2012, and the AKC Number One Producing Female for 2009, and 2011 as well as an AKC Sire of Merit, AKC Dam of Merit, and AKC Dam of Distinction (2014).

If you are interested in my blood lines and would like to reserve a pup, please contact me using the contact information above so that we can talk and evaluate your home as a good fit for my genetics. (Most, if not all, LUCKY HIT pups have been reserved prior to birth.)

After we've talked you may wish to reserve a pup in your name. The pups are eligible for registration with the American Kennel Club (AKC). (You are also able to obtain a registration through the Anatolian Shepherd Dog Club of American [ASDCA] as well.) I have raised and owned WORKING ANATOLIANS since 1985 and as a bonus my WORKING ANATOLIANS have proven consistently and over many years to be some of the TOP SHOW ANATOLIANS in the United States.

Basically, I sell my pups for $1,800.00 and Special Pick Puppies for $3,000.00. To reserve a pup in your name, I first require that we talk and that we both believe your home is a good fit for my genetics and, prior to breeding and/or birthing, I require a 10% non-refundable deposit. With the deposit I request that you include a letter with an overview of our conversation detailing why you want an Anatolian, your past experiences with Anatolians, animals you have, and other information regarding the situation in which the pup will be placed.

Once the pups are born, I require the total non-refundable deposit to be 50% of the total price to continue holding the pup in your name. (Those who have a 10% deposit must send an additional 40% of the total within one week of notification of the birth and availability to maintain their reservation without loss of the initial 10%.) (For example, an initial deposit on a $3,000.00 pup is $300.00. When the pups are born an additional $1,200.00 must be received within a week of notification.)

Final payment is due in full when you pick up your pup at my ranch or no later than the day the pup becomes nine weeks of age. Failure to make the final payment by the time the pup reaches nine weeks of age indicates you no longer have an interest in the pup and forfeit your non-refundable deposit.

We sign a contract after you make your final pup payment and before you pick up the pup. (Contract revisions for the 2014 contract and earlier are underway for 2015. While some aspects of the contract will remain the same, others elements will be different. In addition, there are three basic contracts now - pet only [$1,800.00], pet with show/breeding potential [$1,800.00 and I maintain specified genetic interest], and show/breeding potential[$3,000.00 up].)

If for some reason you are unable to pick up the pup between eight and nine weeks of age, a $100.00 a week boarding/training fee is charged beginning the day the pup turns nine weeks. In addition to the pup's purchase price, you are responsible for all expenses of any and every kind incurred by the pup while it is in my care from the day the pup turns nine weeks until you pick up your pup. The boarding/training fee must be paid monthly and in advance beginning on the day the pup turns nine weeks. All additional expenses are paid monthly as incurred. However, the practice of leaving a pup here for me to raise is firmly discouraged.

Pups cannot be picked up by their new owners prior to eight weeks of age.




The picture below was taken in 1985 of EBELING'S KASIF (CASY), my first Anatolian, sire of Conard's Tawny KAT, grand sire of Lucky Hit's Tawny Shadow and Lucky Hit's Tawny Autumn, and great grand sire of Lucky Hit Shadow KASIF (CASE). Because of Case's amazing working ability, Case was named to honor Casy's memory, as Case's working ability was the equal of his amazing grandsire, Casy. Casy was also the great grand sire of my 2001 and 2002 litters, and the genetic base of my line. Casy was an incredible working Anatolian and I often use my memory of his demeanor, behavior, and character when I am selecting Anatolian pups for superior working ability!
