Pup Alert  Newsletter
June  1st, 2017
Please contact XANADU by phone if you have questions about your upcoming deposit-reserved puppy or a puppy that you hope to get. We receive many emails inquiries. I don't want to overlook a message from you or neglect your important question. It's faster to call me, and that is especially important when you are interested in a particular pup. Our primary phone number is  970 626-9747 , and you are welcome to contact me on weekdays and Saturdays.
 
While this rarely occurs, any pup that is at XANADU at 11 weeks old is greatly discounted. We don't keep any pup until we get our puppy price; we want ALL puppies to go to their loving, forever homes between 7 3/4 and 9 weeks or during week 10. 
 
Week 9 for a puppy is a time in which they go through a period of skepticism about newness--new people, new places, etc. That developmental period is over by week 10.
 
Beginning with week 13, an important socialization window closes. At XANADU, no matter the age of the pup, we always, always play with and snuggle all puppies. But between 7 3/4 and 8 weeks of age, the pups are so ready to find their new human BFFs! At that age, they try to charm everyone into taking them home.
 
Puppies from litters that have already been born are described below. Their litter photos are attached. The dates these litters can go home are also noted. Pricing for the pups in each litter is included. Pet Home puppies are equally as healthy, friendly and snuggly as the more expensive Litter Pick puppies. The Litter Pick puppies exist for all who want certain vanity features, like coat color and symmetry, eye color, etc. Some very popular features are harder to achieve, and this is why the Litter Pick pups cost more. Blue-eyed and bi-eyed (one blue eye and one brown eye) are more expensive than the brown-eyed pups. I am seldom asked to choose a Litter Pick puppy for someone based on that pup's intelligence, people-skills, attention, etc., but these are characteristics for which XANADU breeds.
Create a great offer by adding words like "free" "personalized" "complimentary" or "customized." A sense of urgency often helps readers take an action, so think about inserting phrases like "for a limited time only" or "only 7 remaining!"

About Our Available Guardian Puppies
divider
According to XANADU Breeding Goals, Guardian Puppies are our "best puppies." They will have future litters for XANADU, and this is how the XANADU Dog lineages improve litter by litter and year by year. These Guardian puppies are sold to Guardian Humans who get our best dogs for the lowest prices. Like all XANADU puppies, Guardians go to wonderful, loving homes. And XANADU gets to see these "best" characteristics in future litters of XANADU puppies. Being a Guardian Human is not for everyone. But if you are interested in becoming a Guardian for a XANADU pup, please request email information. For the right persons, being a Guardian is a win-win-win situation: a win for Guardian Human, Guardian Puppy, and for XANADU of the Rockies. Besides the reduction in initial price, ALL reproductive expenses are covered by XANADU, puppy vet care, and there is compensation for pup care for Guardians of females, although the initial price compensation is the greatest. Ordinarily, female Guardians have two litters for XANADU; males have four litters, and these litters can be by semen collection and freezing at the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Ft. Collins. Semen collection and storage is also a XANADU expense.
 
Parent dogs of puppies that will be born between now and next Sunday are described as well. You can see their photos on our www.xanadoodle.com website. If you have submitted a deposit for a litter that is not listed below, don't worry. You will be notified when your litter is born, and photos of the new puppies will be included in an upcoming Pup Alert newsletter. If your name is noted in litter reservations below, please confirm your reservation with a phone call or by an email to XanaduPack@gmail.com.
 
IF you have submitted a deposit for a pup in a litter below and do not see your name, please call me so records can be corrected.
 
Thank you, and our best!

The XANADU GOBERIANS

C-1. Standard-size GOBERIAN & (we hope, a few) LOW-SHED GOBERIAN PUPS
UHURA'S Pups by AKC white, blue-eyed Siberian Husky SAINT
Note: Because Uhura has such BIG litters, she was bred to two males, Romulus and Saint. Saint's litter: Wonderful standard-sized Goberian pups; SOME may be lower shed; most will look just like all other Goberians--that is, they will have Husky-like coats that will shed (like most Goberians), but all should be a bit lower shed. Some of Saint's pups are solid white; some wonderfully spotted. Both Saint and Uhuru are especially sweet, alert, intelligent dogs; both are great with children and other dogs. These standard Goberian pups should be 48-55 pounds as adult dogs. Pups arrived May 20; ready for new homes in mid-July.

GUARDIAN PUP(S): $1000
LITTER PICK MALE: $2500
LITTER PICK FEMALE: $2500

C-2 Low-Shed GOBERIAN Pups: ULURU and Pup Charming. Some pups will look more like mom and some more like dad; the objective is puppies that are no-to-low-shed. Expected size of these GOBERIAN X pups is about 35 lb. (between 30 and 40 lb.) Some puppies could be white/cream, like Pup Charming. Blue eyes and brown eyes are expected. Goberian Pup Charming is AKC Siberian Husky Saint's son.

D. Standard-size F1 GOBERIAN LITTER: Red Golden Retriever, EVE, and blue-eyed AKC Siberian Husky, UberKhan. This should be a lovely standard litter. Many have submitted deposits and hope for a pup from this litter, but it's my guess that puppies from our earlier litters may be selected instead, because ALL customers receive Pup Alert Newsletters and because it is unlikely that Eve's litter will accommodate all requests.
