PLANNED LITTERS

Thank you for taking an interest in our upcoming litters! We have several exciting upcoming/future litters planned for the near future. (Please note, these plans may be subject to change depending on circumstances.)

We aim to mix and match various litter combinations to ensure very low levels of inbreeding, with a Coefficient Of Inbreeding (COI) ranging from 0% COI (new outcross litters) up to a maximum of around 6% COI, which is calculated over 25 Generations according to pedigree analysis. Whenever possible, provided both parents have been DNA profiled via EMBARK (for dogs born from 2021 onward) we also calculate the predicted genetic COI for the planned litter combination, based on genomic analysis of heterozygosity.

We also try to ensure a slight spectrum of wolf content ranging from no/low wolf content (under 5%) up to a maximum of around 20% wolf content, calculated by EMBARK DNA and/or pedigree analysis. This way, we can produce wolfy-looking puppies with very little actual wolf content, which means that the puppies are easier to handle overall and, for the litters without any detectable wolf content via DNA, potentially suitable for homes in places where actual wolf content is restricted, or forbidden.

We also try to combine males and females that have complimentary traits with regard to ear size/set, headshape/muzzle length, tail set, coat length, body size, etc as well as complimentary characters, to create well-balanced offspring in a variety of coat colors, according to the international Tamaskan breed standard. As a result, we can be sure to have an interesting selection of available puppies, whether you're looking for a personal/family pet or perhaps a potential future breeding dog with lots of possible options for future breeding combinations.

Please feel free to fill out an application form to join the Waiting List for these upcoming litters. If approved, you will be invited to pay the deposit, in advance, to finalize your position on the Waiting List.

APPLICATION PROCESS

We are currently in the process of screening potential new homes for suitability. Homes with a yard and experience with Arctic / Wolfdog / German Shepherd breeds are preferred, but not necessarily required. Tamaskan Dogs are very pack-oriented and usually do best in a household where there already is another dog for companionship, or family members who are home for most of the day.


Our puppies live all over the world and we welcome international inquiries. However, please note that due the large number of emails and applications, it sometimes takes a while to respond. Thank you for understanding! For more information about the whole purchase process, please click HERE.
