Unfortunately, when his herder, livestock, and him were crossing a road, he was hit by a truck. This was not due to negligence of the herder but was just an accident, and...

    Banner year for puppies
    By - Liz Georges - Communications Coordinator
    We had a banner year at CCF in 2013 for puppies -- 5 litters! And that’s a good thing, because there’s now a two year waiting list for the dogs. We’ve also had some very good news from our research -- the dogs don’t just reduce predation, they increase tolerance among farmers for predators....

    Puppies on the Move
    By - Anja Bradley - Tourism and Education Manager
    On November 15th, our intrepid little explorers made their biggest move yet of their young lives. A day trip out into the large, enclosed grazing area next to the kraal! They weren’t too sure at first and didn’t even want to follow mom, Aleya. After much encouragement (and by that I mean having to carry them!),...

    Livestock Guarding Dog Programme Success
    By - Liz Georges - Communications Manager
    Our Livestock Guarding Dog Programme is so successful in part because of our thorough concern and assistance for the dogs throughout their lifespan, and in recent months, we’ve seen that demonstrated clearly. Our first litter of Kangals has been placed. Placement with a farmer happens when a puppy is eight weeks old....

    The hard reality of a livestock guarding dog's life
    By - Allison Rogers - Grants Manager
    I'm sad to report that one of CCF's young Kangal guard dogs, Cazgir, died a few weeks ago. Cazgir had been imported to CCF from the United States to help build up the Kangal breeding lines. Cazgir was a victim of a disease that is causing serious problems with livestock guarding dogs in sub-Saharan Africa: lingual squamous...

    The miracle litter!
    By - Allison Rogers - Grants manager
    Last night (June 6), CCF's livestock guarding dog Penda gave birth to a litter of 9 guarding dogs-to-be. A few weeks ago, Penda was bitten by a puff adder, one of the deadly venomous snakes Namibia is famous for. We didn't know if she would survive, let alone if her pups would. Luckily, all 9--5 boys and 4 girls--seem...
