Kenai’s Mother – Ziva

She has been called The Most Beautiful Shepherd Ever.  Ziva, is big and black and has oversized ears on top of her alert face.  Apparently, folks at Abby Kennels, call her Donkey because she seemed to never have grown in to her ears. Check out her closeups and her impressive pedigree (offspring to Arras Vom Ostrerfeld and Vica Von Gumperstreuth).

Ziva had her third litter of puppies on January 24, 2013. 8 beautiful pups. We were told that Ziva was a natural mother, delivering her litter with very little help from her humans.  She examined each of her pups, cleaned it and stimulated each until they were all nursing healthily.  One of those little pups was to become our Kenai.
