Lullaby's litter of four is small for a female of her size. Still, this litter is a blessing...and still...we are disappointed that the litter is so small. That means persons who expected a Lullaby-pup in May will be waiting for other litters' puppies.
So many families hoped for a pup from Bhakti's litter by Chinook. And that breeding has had to be postponed until (probably) September. Bhakti's Guardians were mistaken: She wasn't in heat at all. Our wise fertility expert at the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital did a progesterone test to help determine when Bhakti actually was in heat and likely to be in heat again. That best-guess is September. This will mean a litter of winter pups, but we will breed for this litter of little Goberians, and those who are next in line and willing to wait for a puppy may select a pup from this upcoming and very popular litter--IF THE BREEDING "TAKES," and depending on the number of puppies born--and the usual eye color, gender, etc. preferences of purchasers. I find myself apologizing quite often for Mother Nature!
Also, and this is an occurrence that I did not expect: So many people have changed hybrid selections, postponed puppy-purchase because of events beyond their control (illnesses, accidents, new jobs, lost jobs, moves, human pregnancies), and sometimes because they've changed their minds about size or gender or timing or...There are so many reasons--and they are all good reasons, too, but these changes make litter selection and deposit placement very difficult for XANADU.
In every instance of litter preference, XANADU will try to honor client wishes regarding litters and pup selection, colors and sexes, but you will be asked to choose a puppy in the order deposits have been submitted. Guardian and Litter Pick options still have priority--but according to the dates deposits have been submitted.
Ordinarily, XANADU does not have puppies available in Oct., Nov., Dec. (except for one litter of small Christmas Doodles), January, or even in February. This year (only), in order to accommodate requests for Goberian puppies, we will have additional breedings in the fall.
IF you are not offered a puppy of your preferred gender, eye color, coat type, size, etc. by the end of this year's season; that is, Christmas--or as soon as XANADU knows there will be no more 2017 Goberian puppies--you will be offered either a 2018 puppy or a refund of your deposit.
Because XANADU is unexpectedly behind in getting Goberian puppies to people who have submitted deposits, we must be fair in seeing that people with the longest-standing deposits have the option to select their pup first. Here is what this will look like:
With each litter that is born (a list of recent Goberian breedings follows), you who have submitted deposits first will be asked if you would like a pup from the available litter--probably these selections will be made when the puppies are six weeks old (because of eye color stability). At that time, we will know how many pups we have, the expected sizes, coat types, eye color, and the genders of the puppies.
If you choose to wait for a subsequent litter's puppies, the next person in line will select a puppy--and so on.
YOU WILL NOT LOSE YOUR DEPOSIT. ALL XANADU GOBERIAN PUPPIES ARE GUARANTEED for TEMPERAMENT, HEALTH, and GENETIC SOUNDNESS. AND...YOU ARE GUARANTEED TO LOVE YOUR PUPPY.
If you have not submitted a deposit for a 2017 Goberian puppy, you may not be able to receive a puppy this season--maybe. Please read upcoming Pup Alerts for updated information regarding breedings and litter sizes.
RECENT GOBERIAN & POMSKY HUSKY-CROSS BREEDINGS--These pregnancies are not yet confirmed. Puppies from the following litters will be ready for new homes in late-July through early August:
UHURU'S LITTER by AKC Siberian Husky, SAINT, and by ROMMY. This pregnancy is unconfirmed. Uhura's Breeding with Rommy and Saint--standard-sized, low-to-no-shed DOODLE ATHLETES & low-to-no-shed GOBERIAN PUPS. Guardian puppies by each sire may be available...and Guardian pup(s) by Rommy will certainly be available.
ULURU'S LITTER by PUP CHARMING. We expect standard (and some pups possibly smaller) multigen Low-Shed GOBERIANS that look more like Momma Uluru and white Goberians that look like Daddy Pup-Charming--that is, who look more Husky-like. Some white puppies are expected; some could have blue eyes. A Guardian pup will be available.
EVE'S LITTER by UBER KHAN. Puppies from this litter should be available during the first part of August. Eve is a wonderful bright red color. STANDARD-SIZED GOBERIAN PUPS EXPECTED; some with blue eyes. A Guardian puppy will be available.
