Our English Shepherd Faithfull just had a litter of 12 puppies!
Mom and dad are both great with our poultry and the puppies will be raised with the chickens, ducks and geese to help teach them to be gentle around poultry. We also have a pen for them in our pasture so they can check out our cattle and horses when they are old enough to go outside.
We put quite a bit of work into our puppies to ensure they have a good start at their new homes and we are very pleased with all the homes our first litter found. They are all doing well.
If you are interested, I've written a little more about them here: http://roscommonacres.com/2012/09/twelve-english-shepherd-puppies/ They also have their own blog here: http://faithfullspuppies.blogspot.com/but there isn't as much information there, yet. You can read a little about her last litter, however, and Mouse should be updating it with pictures of each of the 12 puppies later today. Feel free to contact me with any questions!
