Looking for a Russian Caucasian Puppy?
Over the past few weeks I have decided to suspend my dog breeding
program in order to focus on facilitating much needed rescue efforts for
My kennel includes four rescues that I have fostered for some time
completely out of pocket myself. I am already in the process of
expanding my kennel to provide better use of space with an eye toward
creating even more accommodations and am asking for your help to fund
these welcome improvements.
Caucasian Ovcharkas are a unique breed, highly intelligent with a
protective nature. This is one of the reasons Fox News interviewed me
about the Caucasian Ovcharka situation with an overcrowded kennel in Las
Vegas a few weeks ago. The interview made me think long and hard about
my future with this breed of dog and what I could do to help.
Recently, four families have contacted me, asking for help with their
dogs in less than two weeks. Each family has its own personal story and
each of these dogs has their own specific needs. I believe that I can
help these unique dogs as well as the people who own them. I have
several success stories and know that I can help create more.
Any funds that you can donate will help purchase kibble and lumber from
our local grain and hardware store, E. M. Brown. Any other donations
will help us buy fencing and kennel needs from our local Tractor Supply.
The dogs thank you and I thank you for your help!
Great Caucasian Ovcharka News!
Here at NEK Caucasians, we are planning a litter of Russian Mountain Dog
puppies for early spring 2023.
This winter we will be breeding two new dogs that we have had since
The male is a huge dark 3 year old Caucasian with a black mane called
Fenrir. He is the son of King Solomon and not related to his mate who
is from Bulgaria.
Our female’s name is Gypsy Girl and she was born in the US from a
Bulgarian female, who also has a lot of black on her face and chest. We
have had Gypsy since she was 6 weeks old and now she is also 3 years old.
Before any mating takes place, both dogs will be taken to the artificial
insemination center. Gypsy Girl will get checked out for pup viability
and any reproductive abnormalities.
Fenrir will have his sperm count tested to ensure he can impregnate a
If everything goes well, we will be expecting puppies in early spring.
If one of the dogs is not ready, we can always fall back on our regular
daddy dog King Solomon and his current mate Natasha, who has had 2
previous litters with King Solomon these past two years.
All dogs are AKC Foundation registered and it is our policy to only
breed a female three times in her lifetime. Many of you may remember
Queen of Sheba who was King Solomon’s firs mate and is now retired and
still lives here at our farm.
Our dogs are known for their large size, loyalty and temperament
although they are afraid of nothing.
If you would like a pup or one of our rescues, we are taking names to
create a list now.
You will not be asked for a deposit until our female is bred.
It’s been a long time since I have posted an update. Spring and summer has been extremely busy between the pups and rescues!
I have only one beautiful female left. The prospective family backed out at the last minute.
I have several rescues that would love forever homes.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any interest!
Be well and be safe everyone!!
Why a Caucasian Ovcharka might be the right dog for you
Caucasian Mountain Dogs are both observant and intelligent. They can
sense outside danger even from inside your house or barn and will alert
you. Extremely loyal, these dogs will purposely lay in egress or exit
points of your house in order to protect you, and deter people they do
This means you may have to step over one if they are guarding your
doorway or other bottlenecks in your house, like your porch or back
These dogs will instinctively bark at strangers they see out the window
or hear near your house. Always, they will follow your cue. If you
know these people and greet them, the dog will cease barking, stand
down and relax, but they probably will not leave your side. Instead
they will lean into you, to let you know your are in good hands (or paws).
Caucasians are great watch dogs outside too. They will patrol the fence
line or perimeter of your property and alert you to any danger. We once
had one of our females catch and kill a sparrow hawk she perceived as
danger, as it was in a tree close to our house.
Looking for protection? This is the right dog. Many of them are
trained as service dogs, and to help people with disabilities. We sell
many dogs to retired Veterans.
Lastly, this dog is full of fierce love for you and your family. Imprint
them to you early, even young puppies. With the right positive
reinforcement and training, your 10 pound pup will become your 150 pound
dog, loyal to you for life.
Natasha and I had a very long, treacherous drive through the blizzard conditions here in northern Vermont for an ultrasound. The trip was well worth it! She has a belly full of puppies and she will be due approximately April 9th.
We made it home safe and sound and she is outside enjoying the late season snow. I myself, am staying indoors and dreading shoveling!
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to be on the waiting list.
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Valentines and Super Bowl!
As of today, I am only accepting one more deposit for the upcoming litter until I have an ultrasound performed in about twenty days. I still have my list of possible forever homes.
Please contact me if you would like to be on the list!
After several exciting days and help with the veterinary staff Natasha and Solomon will become parents!
The litter will arrive around Easter, but I will get a better date after she has her ultrasound in twenty days.
I have six deposits for forever homes and I am willing to take only a couple more.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
Fenrir is a pup from one of Sheba’s early litters. He was pick of the
litter and we love his dark features and size.
He reminds us of Sheba — especially the way her colors can go from very
light to very dark as the seasons change!
Approaching three years old, Fenrir is ready to mate.
He will be our new sire when we retire Solomon, but this pup is
available for stud service right now.
He is going crazy because we have 3 females in heat at the farm, but we
are only going to breed one: Natasha with Solomon.
If you have a Caucasian your would like to breed to ours, please let us
We have an artificial insemination center nearby, and can help take care
of all the details.
We’re having Pups!
We took our dam Natasha to our usual artificial insemination veterinary
this morning her progesterone levels were highly elevated.
We will be bring in our sire King Solomon on Monday.
If you want a puppy, now is the time to put down your deposits and get
We will be taking just three more deposits unless the ultrasound shows
many more pups.
We are hoping for 10 puppies, just like last spring! Five pups have
Parents on premises — Please come up to see our Russian Mountain Dogs!
The Puppies Are Coming!
We are expecting our litter of Caucasian Ovcharkas around Easter!
Natasha is our dam — this will be her second litter.
We are hoping for great off colors!
Last year we had 2 rare black pups and a pure white one who looks like a
Grand Pyranees but much larger.
King Solomon is our sire – this will be his 5th litter.
We are taking deposits of $250 which guarantees an AKC foundation pup.
Right now we have 5 deposits and are looking for 3 more.
Want a pup? Give Tim a call at 802 473 8010!
Want to come see dogs? Parents and relatives are on the premises.
Thank you for your interest in our Russian Caucasian Ovcharka puppies!
Our female Natasha spent the afternoon at the artificial insemination
center with good news. She has been showing signs of heat, so will be
bred as soon as possible.
We have 3 confirmed deposits on puppies that we will be expecting right
around Easter, just like last year.
The parents will be the same and both AKC foundation dogs with papers:
King Solomon who has fathered four litters of puppies and Natasha who
has given birth to one litter so far.
If you would like a pup, we are accepting deposits of $250 per puppy.
You will get to choose your pup in the order we receive your deposit.
This is the only litter we are expecting this year, so please contact us
now if you are interested. Both parents and pups from other litters are
available if you would like to visit.
This year is off to a cold start! Solomon and Natasha don’t seem to mind it one bit.
They love being together and frolicking in the snow for hours.
Looking forward to spring already and the excitement it will bring!
I am quite pleased with the progress my rescues have made. They both changed from unpredictable aggressive dogs into calm obedient and very loving dogs here in the household.
One of them is ready for a forever single animal home preferably with no kids.
Stay safe and healthy everyone!
My Queen of Sheba after returning home from six nights in ICU for an intestinal blockage caused by baked beef bones. I will never, ever give any of my dogs these types of “treats” again!!
Here is what you can do with all the fur when the dogs blow their coats! I’m selling it on Etsy!! Let me know if you have interest
I just got some more photos of another one of my pups at their forever home!
I just received several photos of some of my pups at their forever homes! Who says they can’t be family dogs?!?
This is my Gypsy Girl! She is from Bulgaria and has grown into a wonderful girl.
She is extremely tall and full of life! Her colors are incredible, the grays and blacks on her chest and forelegs are astonishing.
When she gets old enough, I bet she will have beautiful pups!
I am very lucky to see one of my rescues almost everyday with her forever family. It’s wonderful to see the changes she has made.
To see Chloe flourish and enjoy people and love her daily walks is extremely heartwarming considering when she came from the shelter she wouldn’t trust anyone and was quite aggressive when asked to do anything.
I have a young dog that came to me for aggressive behavior many months ago. She also had a condition referred to as “cherry eye”. I think that it might have been part of her issues. The veterinarian did a fantastic job on her surgery and she has made huge advances in her attitude.
Sky is a very sweet girl that loves to sleep at the foot of the bed and snuggle on the couch. She would love a home with preferably no kids and no other household pets. She does like people,but is wary of those she does not know.
Please contact me if you might be interested!
This is Ivan! He is a pup from my very first litter that came back to me due to a family break-up. I am lucky enough to be able to rehome him with his full sister Lil’Bear!
I did not want either of these to sweet pups to leave, but I know the home where Lil’Bear is and that she would love to have her brother with her. They haven’t seen each other in several months and I’m sure tails are going to wag!
Hello.I’m sorry for my delayed responses and outdated website! With fall coming in, it has been a busy time.The website will be getting many new updates over the next several days.I do not currently have any puppies for sale, but are taking reservations for the next upcoming litter in the very early spring. I will be accepting two hundred dollar deposits from serious inquiries that I have interviewed. I do have a couple of rescues that I would love to rehome.Please feel free to contact me by email or my cell phone at:(802)473-8010Thank you,Tim
Already found their forever home!
Boy, how time flies! Pups are growing like crazy and love being on solid food. They are incredibly active and enjoy romping around their playpen.They are definitely showing their personalities!
I have four males and two females that are looking for their forever homes. Please get in touch with me if your family is interested. The pups will have their first vet visit in a couple of weeks and will be ready to go!
I have finally gotten some photos of my pups!
Natasha has ten beautiful little tanks! They are incredibly hard to get pictures of because of all their wrigglin’ around.
If you are interested, I do still have a few pups looking for their forever homes.
I’m sorry it has been so long since I have updated my site!
Natasha is pregnant and due at the end of the month. She is a beautiful fox fawn color and very large. I can’t wait to see her pups. She has a wonderful temperament and King Solomon is a fantastic oaf!
The pups are $2,500 regardless of gender and come with papers but, not including breeding rights. The pups will have their first round of shots before they go to their forever homes.
If you are interested, please feel free to contact me!
The pups are already running around in their new play pen!
Their eyes are all open and they are learning their voices. They love all the new food options they have.
It’s hard to believe that I have two males left. If you are interested, please get in touch!
Almost a year ago a rescue center contacted me about a Caucasian that they were having a very difficult time finding a home for. Chloe is here and doing just fine! She still has some issues, but she trusts me and I her so it works. The rescue center contacted me today asking me about her. The volunteers apparently ask about her frequently.
Hello everyone! It’s been a fun few weeks, Pups are starting to open their eyes and are getting up on all fours. They are squirming little buggers!
As of right now, I have only two males left, here are three photos each of the two boys. They would love to meet their forever homes!
The pups are incredibly cute! They haven’t opened their eyes yet, but are crawling all around.
There are only FIVE left that are looking for homes. The two girls are larger than the remaining three boys.
Sheba has been a fantastic mom and is extremely vigilant. She is such a sweetheart too watch!
Sheba did a wonderful job!
She had TWELVE healthy pups! She was a real trooper, tending to those pups all day and night.
Two of the pups are spoken for and the forever homes are getting frequent updates.
My other beasts know something magical has been going on inside. I love watching the other dogs behavior change when they sense and smell new beginnings.
I would love to speak with any interested families about forever homes for these pups!
Sheba is resting comfortably, but has yet to have her pups, the poor girl!
One of her pups(when they arrive) has found a forever home.
I can’t wait to meet these little puff balls!
Sheba is getting very close! The poor girl is resting comfortably in her whelping pen with her fan giving her a nice breeze.
I think tomorrow will be the night!
Happy Sunday morning!
Sheba’s whelping pen has just been set up in my foyer and she is starting to nest! She didn’t seem to mind me trimming her belly hair. Want to make sure those cute pups can easily nurse!
Feel free to contact me if you have any interest in one of my pups becoming part of your family!
One of the pups is now spoken for!
That now makes 9 little ones left, I hope to meet some more forever homes!
I know it has been a long time since my last post.
Sheba had X-ray confirmation on her litter today! She is expecting to have 10 pups next week!
As of today, I am accepting deposits.
A five hundred dollar deposit is required and I accept and prefer PayPal.
This will be Sheba’s third and final litter. She and her mate Solomon have beautiful coloring and sweet dispositions.
I encourage the forever homes to come and visit the farm and see the parents.
The litter will be AKC registered.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
It looks as though there will be another litter from Sheba, Waiting on the confirmation from the veterinarian in just a couple of days! There is quite a waiting list and I will let everyone know what the ultrasound says.
The dogs love the cooling temperatures and are anxiously awaiting the fall weather , unlike some of us!
Welcome Back Fenrir!
It is with great pleasure that we welcome Fenrir, the male pup that was
our 2020 Ground Hog’s Day pick of the litter back into our fold.
Fenrir is a black masked fawn puppy 6 months old who was the largest
male from Sheba and Solomon’s 2020 litter this spring.
He was purchased by a couple from Maine who fell upon hard economic
times due to job loss caused by the pandemic.
Unselfishly, they contacted us requesting that we might help offer the
life this large breed puppy deserves.
Fenrir is not for sale, but we are hoping to breed him to our Bulgarian
Princess Gypsy Girl one day.
I am back from a crazy trip!
Two new females with completely different bloodlines have become part of my pack.
Natasha is a breeding age female that is a beautiful fox fawn color and Gypsy Girl is a first generation pup from Bulgaria, They have adjusted well with the others and I can’t wait to show more photos!
Hello everyone! My apologies for not updating my posts.
I am currently packing for a trip to acquire a mate for Samson and will be returning in a couple of weeks. Sheba has had two wonderful litters and I plan on having only one more with her.
It seems so strange not to have any pups underfoot!! The other sweet beasts don’t mind since they get extra attention now.
It’s a bittersweet time here at the kennel. All of my pups have gone to their forever homes! I did not expect them all to be gone so quickly. It was wonderful to meet all of the families.
I intend to have one more litter with Sheba later this fall. I am in the planning phase of going on a trip to acquire another female in the next couple of weeks.
Thank you to all the families that did make the journey and also thank you to everyone that showed interest in my dogs and pups. I will continue to update my site with progress of the rescues and all the dogs enjoying the summer that has finally arrived.
I am not taking deposits on the next litter, but I am taking reservations.
Thank you everyone!!
How time flies! I would say that my dogs and pups thoroughly enjoy these days of splendid isolation since they get even more attention.
I’m happy to say that one of my last remaining three girls is going to her forever home! My sweet pup I nicknamed “Runtsy” is now “Hera”
I have only two females left and they have all of their vaccinations. Everyone is healthy and happy up here in the NEK, except for those of us that are sick of the snow(it did snow this morning!).
It has been a strange couple of weeks! A positive aspect is that the four remaining girls have been getting even more attention. They really are at the stage to bond with a family and get individual TLC. Their personalities are showing rapidly and I love them all beyond words.
My own pets and rescues, along with the sweet pups has given me much joy in these uncertain times.
Only four females left!! Maximus headed to his new home today, which is always bittersweet.
Over half of them have left in just the last few days and I am grateful to have been able to meet the families.
Please feel free to reach me if you have interest!
Update 03/27/2020Pups are going fast!What an incredible week! Several pups have headed to their forever homes! A family is braving the roads to come from Indiana to get the two last males(I’m so glad they are going together) and another is coming from Michigan to get a huge female pup for their family. I only have four females left and they are huge!!
ANOTHER 03/25/2020 UPDATE!Since most everyone is staying home, what better time to bond with a new puppy?!?I have been lucky enough to spend extra time with the pups and rescues.Another pup is heading to his forever home this afternoon, so the day will be a little bittersweet
We have some huge pups to choose from as you can see.
Some people seem to always want the boys, but I definitely prefer the ladies!
The puppies are growing up fast and their are several still looking for their forever homes! In these strange times having a cute ball of fluff to have is a wonderful thing. I’ve added a photo of Uncle Samson just to show what they will grow into!
Today we’re updating photos of pups that are still available — we have
males and females in all colors and sizes, and they will be ready to go
to new homes in 3 weeks.
Pups are already on solid food, drinking from water dishes and gaining

These cuties are ready for breakfast!
Pups are growing fast! They definitely developing their own personalities. Here are a few shots of them that I took playing in their whelping pen.
Exciting snowy weekend here, three male pups have been sold! A family just came from Maine and picked out a sweet pup to become part of their family! I love when I get to spend time with my pups forever families. It is very important to me to know where my sweet pups are heading!
Had a lot of fun taking photos of the pups looking for their forever homes!
More pups that are looking for forever homes!
Look at the cuteness!
Sheba and the pups just moved into a much larger space! The pups are growing so fast, they needed a much larger place to start to roam around.
The puppies have all opened their eyes and started walking! Some of them are learning to howl and scratch their ears. It is the cutest thing to watch!
Photos below have been updated!!
Puppy Litter Update
Our 10 tiny pups were two weeks old yesterday and have opened their little blue eyes. Coloration wise, we still have 3 dark ones which is very rare for Caucasians.
Their whelping collars have arrived and we will be posting more photos in our Caucasian Puppies for Sale section.
All but 2 puppies are for sale. If there is a certain pup you are fond of, please refer to it by Gender and Number when contacting us by email or phone.
Email is firstname.lastname@example.org and phone is 802 473 8010.
We’ve got some beautiful rare pups that will grown into impressive large breed dogs.
I will be updating photos with their brand new whelping collars! It will make it much easier to pick out your puppy and also to watch it grow!
I had so much fun taking pictures of all the pups today! Please check the pictures out on today’s dog blog (they made me work for those photos!)
Update 02/13/2020 Puppy Cuteness!
Starting this weekend you can visit these beautiful puppies!
Update 02/02/2020: The litter has arrived! I will be posting photos of the pups just as soon as they get up and running around!
Update 01/01/2020: We are expecting our 2020 litter of Caucasian Ovcharkas the last day of January! Ring in the new year with one of our purebred pups — we are taking reservations now! For more information, contact Tim at email@example.com or give us a call at 802 473 8010.
Our registered male (Sire) King Solomon and Queen of Sheba (Dam) had a litter of puppies last Christmas Eve here in the Northeast Kingdom. We sold 7 of the 9 puppies and kept a breeding female (Grey Girl, grizzle like her mother) and the runt Lil Bear whom we have had spayed and she is a family pet. Both pups have had obedience training and we have Grey Girl for sale or trade.
Our big news is that we have a new stud, who is King Solomon’s full brother, Samson. Samson not only has the breeding and stature to be a sire, but he has just turned 2 years old and is a Blue Boy, meaning he is gray with gray blue eyes. He has been through obedience training, has his certificate, and is AKC registered.
We plan to breed Samson and Sheba this fall and will hopefully be expecting Sheba to whelp between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. These will be pure bred puppies born to AKC registered parents and new owners will be free to register them.
If you are interested, please let us know. We will not be taking deposits until Sheba’s ultrasound shows the number of puppies, which will be 20 days after conception. We will not know the color until the pups are born. All puppies that are Grizzle or Fawn will cost the same as last year, which was $2,500 independent of gender.
A blue puppy, male or female will be more — we have only ever seen one and we own him.
Our dogs are well socialized, live at our farm with us, and are wonderful water dogs — we live on a river, please view some of our Dog videos if you’d like to see the puppies swim.
They are protective, loving, very intelligent and great family dogs. They tend to get quite large — even our female weighs 135 and the big boys 175 – 180 pounds.
If you are interested, please add yourself to our list.
