Kusco puppies are brought up inside the house in a warm family environment. Before they go to their new homes they will have had their first vaccinations, be vet checked, wormed, microchipped and registered on the Limited (or Main by arrangement) Pure Bred Register. They will be familiar with a collar and lead, be at least partly house-trained, be accustomed to car travel and a puppy pack will be supplied.
Our next litter is planned for late 2020 and we will be expecting black, red and chocolate puppies.
The parents of the planned litter will be Ch Callicoma Mudstone and Ch Morkerbook Saffire Night (photo above). Both dogs have been hip and elbow scored, DNA profiled and cleared for breeding by their Vet.
The Kusco Moonlight litter was whelped in late December and have all gone to their new homes except for Blue who is staying with us and will be a show dog, obedience dog and loved family member.
We do not have a litter planned until late 2022.
