A first for CCF's dog program

August is turning out to be a great month for CCF's Livestock Guarding Dog Programme. Just last week, one of CCF's female Anatolians gave birth to the first litter created through artificial insemination (AI). AI allows CCF to expand its breeding programme beyond the males at CCF, to keep the gene pool of the guarding dogs in Namibia as deep as possible. This is a great advance for CCF and the LGD programme.

In addition, the miracle cubs, who survived their pregnant mother being bitten by a puff adder, are going to their new homes throughout Namibia this week. We expect great things from these dogs, given everything they survived before birth! We have another litter expected at the end of the month, and I will let you know how that one turns out. In the meantime, thank you for your support of this incredibly successful programme.
