Arrival Story: Kuma was born in Phoenix, Arizona. We purchased him from an Anatolian Shepherd breeder who also raised miniature horses. We wanted to get an Anatolian Shepherd because our house was robbed twice within a year and a half. We needed a protective dog. We saw the breed at a pet expo and fell in love with the Anatolians. We knew this would be the perfect dog for us. Unfortunately I got laid off from my job and could not afford to spend hundreds of dollars on a dog so we got our beloved Sachi from the humane society. Please check our Sachi's dogster page! Sachi had a rough start in life. She contracted parvo while she was at the humane society but after a long stay in the hospital, she recovered (thank goodness!) Sachi had separation anxiety so after about a year, we got her a friend...Kuma. Kuma has been a joy to have in our family. He and Sachi love each other. He also loves our cat (photos to come).
