Litter picture by Alice van Kempen

Litter picture for our latest litter; I.

Like with every litter, we invite a photographer to come and take pictures of all the puppies. This time we are blessed as Alice van Kempen was kind enough to volunteer her time.

The line-up picture is one of our trademarks and we’re especially pleased with this one.

Puppies are born!

It took an emergency C-section, but that doesn’t bring us less joy to be able to say that 8 puppies were born today from Alice for Laelaps Marpet Bull X Satyricon Gold Digger.

Overwhelmed with requests

We’re currently completely overwhelmed by the number of requests we’re getting for puppies from our upcoming litter. There’s enough interest for us to have 4 or 5 litters and still not be able to help everyone to a pup.

Therefore we ask that you no longer send us an email requesting a puppy, unless you’re prepared to agree to a co-ownership or are willing to wait for a next litter (first quarter of 2021).

For more information about co-ownership, feel free to send us an email.

Only 3 more weeks to go.

Pregnancy confirmed

Today we were at the vet to do an ultrasound in hopes of confirming pregnancy in our bitch Alice for Laelaps Marpet Bull.

We are delighted to announce that we have indeed seen several embryo’s growing inside of her!

For those of you who would like to try and guess the number of puppies we’ll be expecting, feel free to count them in the video below.

Litter Announcement

We are proud to announce our next breeding, from which we will be expecting puppies mid July. Puppies will be allowed to leave the nest around beginning of September.

Puppies are born!

We’re very excited to tell you that last night puppies were born out of Fortuna of Laelaps x Skylarks Reflection of Magic.

A total of 7 puppies (2 bitches, 5 dogs) were born. Mother and pups are doing great.

Galahad of Laelaps looking for a new home.

We are looking for a new ‘forever’¬†family for Galahad of Laelaps, born 22nd of May 2018, due to a mismatch with his previous owners. He is a good boy, but will challenge you a lot. Therefore we are looking for an experienced person with a lot of time, without small children. Galahad has been taking part in a heart study by Dr. H. Van Meeuwen, which means he has been dopplered at 6, 9 and 12 weeks and at ~6 months old. We prefer that he continues to be part of the study, which means he would also be tested at 1 and 1,5 years old. He is also BAER tested and fully vaccinated.

Sad news

Yesterday we received some very sad news;
Eurydice of Laelaps, a.k.a. “Dewi”, had to be put to sleep due to a heart defect.
We are struck with sadness and extend our deepest sympathies to the owners.

We always try to do everything in our power to prevent such sickness by testing the breeding animals via Doppler. After Dewi showed signs of her illness, she was immediately tested by a specialist; Dr. H. van Meeuwen.

Dr. Van Meeuwen is currently running a study of heart defects in bullterriers that aims to develop a DNA test to determine hereditary heart defects in bullterriers. It is our hope that she will be able to use the materials she got from the examination to further her research. Because, for us, it would be the only solace we can get out of Dewi’s early demise.

Sweet dreams lovely girl.
