Zena was born on a sheep farm in Blossom, Texas. She was the only white/biscuit puppy in her litter. She has changed coat colors over the years. She drops her coat twice a year and everytime it comes back a little different.
Both of her parents are AKC registered. She comes from an excellent line of livestock guard dogs. I did not purchase her AKC registration paperwork, or breeding rights.

L'Diesel was born on a goat farm in north Texas. I picked him up on July 4th, 2019!! What a fun day that was.
"L'D" was NEVER little. At 10 months old he weighed over 120 lbs. He weighs about 155 lbs now and is a sweet, efficient, and loving guardian dog. But don't let the that fool you, he does NOT allow predator's near our livestock or on our property.
