         Please Send Photos of your XANADU Dog All Decked Out for the Holidays; Holiday Photos Will Be Included in the Next Several Pup Alerts of this Season. THANK YOU ALL & HAPPY H O L I D A Y S!
ALL XANADU Pups are GUARANTEED for Temperament, Genetic Soundness, and Vet-Checked Health. (See XANADU'S Ltd. Warranty below) For additional photos of the parents of these litters, please visit "Breeding Dogs" page or see our fall Pup Alert Newsletters).   
XANADU Breeding Goals are linked below. This document is especially important when considering Ireland's litter. Ireland really is a gen-u-ine XANADU Dog, and not just Pomsky. This litter's dad is an AKC beautiful, small , red-wolfy-looking Pomeranian whose name is Wolf...but Momma-Ireland has a bigger heritage than the "Pomsky" hybrid (Siberian Husky / Pomeranian cross). Additional breeds include (genetically-tested) Golden Retriever, Miniature Poodle, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Australian Shepherd...all the way back to the XANADU Foundation Dam, Habeebtea Alice. 
See below for Guardian Information if you want our "best" pup for a lower price and like having puppies underfoot in two future litters (females) or four future litters (male Guardians) Both a female and male Guardian are available in Ireland's litter of six .

PUP SHIPMENTS / TRANSPORTATION: You have more options now. Please Note below.

TRANSPORTATION for OUR HOLIDAY LITTERS: Airlines get cranky about shipping pets close to Christmas; they just won't do it, and we don't want a XANADU baby to be bumped in pet cargo in favor of a suitcase. Santa's gifts to good children will be available to fly when they are eight weeks old, and cannot be held longer by their Guardian families or at the XANADU Headquarters. Our babies will be available for flights and available to be picked up from Guardians on the front range of Colorado (Pueblo to Denver and through Longmont) from just after Thanksgiving (Zoe's litter) through early December.

Puppy photo attachments and XANADU Breeding Goals (below) will let you know if you want XANADU'S Breeding Goals in your new BFF. XANADU'S Mission is the development of the World's Best Family Dog.
ALL of these litters' pups will be intelligent, attentive, highly-trainable adult dogs. Personalities and characteristics differ in our current litters. But many puppies in XANADU litters are expected to be GREAT SERVICE DOG CANDIDATES. Please inquire if you hope to train your pup for service. Do remember that all pups are sweet little terrorists...they ALL do need positive training. I recommend positive, pro-active training books and puppy classes . Your veterinarian and local Pet Shop can help you find a good trainer.
1. ZOE' & ELVIS'S GOLDEN RETRIEVER HOLIDAY LITTER: MALES & FEMALES are CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. CONTACT Mandi at for Pet Home & Litter Pick Puppies or CALL Sheron for Guardian pups at 970 708-8030.

Finding a Golden Retriever who tests clear in all 165 of Cornell University's Embark Genetic Tests is almost impossible. Puppies from this litter are not to be registered. XANADU will be the sole owner of this lineage. You could pay $10,000 or more for a registered Golden Retriever pup that does not have this litter's genetic credentials, hardiness, and guarantee. We are very proud, and this is probably a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get a GREAT American Golden Retriever puppy. XANADU will not repeat this breeding. Please see parent photos below (Zoe' & Elvis Jr.). Photo of Grand-Sire, Elvis Sr., at age 17 with Elvis Jr. (on left).

2. XANADU POMSKY LITTER out of IRELAND and sired by AKC Pomeranian, WOLF
A rainbow of six puppies from white polka-dot parti-colors to black with white, and to-this-and-to-that color. One pup has a blue eye --like Momma Ireland. (True XANADU pups and calmer than most Pomskies. Please see Our Breeding Goals, above).

$400 Deposits are Currently Being Accepted; Please Contact Mandi at

Please note Pomsky Information on our website for "regular" Pomskies; ours will be calmer and smaller. XANADU Pomsky prices will be slightly higher than Goberian prices, because of the necessity for veterinary intervention for breeding. You will note that XANADU pricing is several thousand dollars less than the Pomskies advertised on the east or west coast.The Pomsky is a small, beautiful, and hardy hybrid.

DOB: Oct. 6, 2018

  • Litter Pick Male and Female, $2885
  • Blue-eyed & bi-eyed pups: $2650 (Price reduced for our partial blue-eyed female pup - noted as Pup 4)

$400 Deposits are Currently Being Accepted; Please Contact Mandi at
3. XANADU GOBERIAN PUPPIES out of BHAKTI and sired by XANADU'S CEDAR (and another true XANADU cross). These puppies will probably be the most beautiful dogs you have ever seen. ALL are tri-colors with beautiful markings. Some have one or two blue eyes. Pups should grow to a size of about 45 lb. as adults. Coats should be plush. Both genders are AVAILABLE.

2018 PRICING follows for GOBERIAN puppies: 
  • Guardian Pups, $1250 (Gotta have great Male & Female Guardians from this exceptional litter)
  • Litter Pick Male and Female, $2885
  • Blue-eyed & bi-eyed pups: $2650
  • Brown-eyed pups: $2250

Hazel-eyed pups are usually the same price as the brown-eyed puppies. Green eyes often turn hazel. Remember that brown eyes are dominant, and a brown-eyed puppy is just as sweet and smart and healthy as a pup with bright blue eyes. Vanity options do cost more. I kept a marvelous pup from last year's litters because of her personality. She is brown-eyed and a simple cream color...nothing special noticed...until you pet her and spend 30 seconds around her.
Please contact me (Sheron) for Guardian male and female information and purchase: 970 708-8030). Please remember that I don't text well; just call any time.

DOB: 5 October 18

4. AVAILABLE YOUNG ADULT F1b GOBERIAN, CHANDA (means "Shining Moon in Hindi.") (also see more photos in our Nov. 16 XANADU Newsletter). Miss Chanda is out of tri-color Cafe' Ole' and sired by Elvis Jr., (perfect red American Golden Retriever whose dad, Elvis Sr., lived to be 17). Both Elvis Jr. and Chanda have perfect, that is, "no known genetic issues" reports from Cornell University's Embark genetic testing which identifies 165 common genetic disorders (XANADU breeds for Temperament, Genetic Soundness, and Vet- Checked General Health as requisite foundations of our breeding program). Chanda is basically an F1b XANADU Goberian, who carries blue eyes, tri-color, and the marvelous temperament we associate with the best of F1b XANADU Goberians and with Service Dogs in general. Her health is great, she doesn't bark (almost never), also typical of most of our Goberians. 

I call Chanda, who was the largest in her litter and the calmest, my "incognito" dog, because she carries all of the characteristics for which XANADU breeds. Well, she is a bit larger than our target size of about 40-lb. Chanda is 60 pounds, is up-to- date on core vaccines, Rabies, and rattlesnake vaccine, takes heartworm medicine monthly, is smart, attentive, fast afoot, and very sweet. AND Chanda does not get car sick -- never has.

I hoped Miss Chanda could be both my Service Dog (something that the trainer at Cottonwood Kennels in CO assured me she could easily do after working with her for a month), AND a breeding dog, because I needed the perfection of her lineage in XANADU'S breeding program, but as noted in our Nov. 16 Newsletter, XANADU is downsizing in 2019). Depending on the stud chosen, Chanda's pups will be blue-eyed, hazel-eyed, or brown-eyed. ALL should be Polar-bear white or cream, wolf-or-Siberian Husky tri-color, or a possible lighter red w/ white markings on chest and paws. They'll be smart, genetically sound, gentle, and as good as it gets with XANADU Goberians.

Chanda's most outstanding characteristic is that she is everybody's mother: She was our Founder's (Alice's) companion and support until Alice died this summer. She played with and protected all of the little pups we had at XANADU, and loved each baby to pieces just as soon as they arrived fresh from their own mothers. As soon as Momma-Fyre was comfortable with another dog babysitter and playmate, Chanda took over mothering little Lobo. 

Chanda will lick your feet (if you like that sort of thing) every evening. Because Service Dogs aren't supposed to lick, I don't let Chanda lick my hands or face -- or the hands and faces of the grandchildren who visited during the summer. Chanda is good with children and with everyone. She knows not to jump up and knock kids or older adults over. 

Chanda is one-year old and house-trained, attentive, affectionate, loves her toys, other pups & dogs. She is gorgeous, eye-liner eyed like Cleopatra, has beautiful teeth, is a lower - shed dog, uses a doggie door, is trained to a Tri-Tronics remote collar, understands English and many hand signals, and she is absolutely ready and prepared to begin formal service training -- which usually begins at age one. Her Breeding Agreement is for one 7-pup + litter, which is small-to-average for a 60-pound female. Elvis Jr. sired 60-lb. Zoe's current litter -- a ten-puppy litter. Chanda cannot be sold without a Breeding Agreement; she's too good and XANADU needs her genetic lineage.

With a Breeding Agreement, Chanda is only $1250 as a multi-purpose Guardian Female.

Contacting XANADU directly for a Guardian, Litter Pick, OR receiving and responding to this newsletter is the fastest way to get the pup you want.
ALL XANADU pups are equally healthy, sweet, smart, and loving regardless of puppy-selection order.

Please refer to the link above, "How to Select a Puppy" which will help you no matter which breeder may have the new BFF you want. The link, "Supplies for New Pup Owners" will help you plan for your new baby ). Most XANADU pups eat Science Diet Puppy food. This is a well-balanced dry food and is veterinarian recommended. If you choose to use a different food in the future, please transition over several weeks to prevent tummy upsets.

Thank you for considering a XANADU puppy. Remember that you are always welcome to contact me with any questions -- for the life of your dog. I may not always know the answers to your questions, but often can refer you to someone who is knowledgeable -- I am not a veterinarian.

To qualify for ownership of a XANADU dog, excellent care of your new family member is required in the rearing of a loving, responsible, good furry-family- member: Love, exercise, training, a great diet, excellent vet care...Also required is that you LOVE your new puppy when you receive him/her. Your puppy is guaranteed to love you back.

Warmest wishes to each one of you as we prepare for winter celebrations with family and friends.
Always my very best to each one of you,
