Fall/Winter 2020 Breeding Plans

by Rex Gaylord on 09/28/20

Michi Bravo Litter

Guccifer X Michi Bravo Litter breeding has been completed. Expected whelp date is October 30, 2020. This is a co-owned litter that will be born in West Virginia. This is a repeat breeding, the Alpha litter was 3 red girls. This mating can produce red or cream (not sesame or black/tan). Both the sire and dam carry the recessive cream gene, so risk of cream puppies is also a possibility. The album on the Guccifer X Michi Alpha Litter is here.

The decision on sire has not been finalized, but he will be from outside of our kennel and a carrier of the AW (sesame) coat trait. We expect to see red, sesame and black/tan (no cream) puppies from this breeding.  Ayumi Charlie Litter Genetic Forecast
