Picked up our new baby girl LGD on Sunday, she's a purebred Anatolian and I asked the breeder TONS of info on her, I think she just omitted a few small details. I was a little disappointed at the pups condition, she was awfully small with a rough coat and extremely skinny and pretty scared and nervous. She was 8 weeks old. Weighed her and she was only 9.5 pounds! I've seen Anatolians on the internet that are 20 pounds at 8 weeks old. Quite a big difference. Apparently the breeder was having health issues and couldn't tend to the pups as she wanted to. They got weaned way to early, and had a very heavy worm load. I dewormed her when we got her home and have been pumping the good food into her. She is doing better now and is happy and playful and is already up to almost 14 pounds. I hope she doesn't have any size issues because of it! I brought Diego home at 12 weeks and he was already 35 pounds!
She is altogether QUITE different than him. He is sorta slow and gangly and laid back and calm, whereas she is very active with lots of energy and VERY agile- always running around and investigating stuff, very energetic. I'm keeping her in the baby barn at night with the baby goats, separated by a gate. During the day I put the baby goats into the baby goat yard and was leaving her around the barn with my big dog Dakota. She didn't like being away from the baby goats though so now every day she "gets in" to the baby goat yard. She is so small she can squeeze under the fence and in between the gates! I was worried about her at first, but after watching her interact with them, she loves them and likes to lay in the shade with them and they don't mind her at all, and it's just the baby goats so I'm not worried. Now she goes in that pen with them every day during the day.
Cute! Love her!
