Litter A was born on 14 January 2017. The birth started at 4 am and finished at 6 pm. 10 healthy babies were born. The babies weighed from 180 to 250 grams. All babies were immediately vital and their first meal went well.
Mom Ziva was very brave. Though this was the first time she gave birth, she guided us through very well and with great motherly instinct, and she knew what to do at any moment. Attending Ziva’s giving birth was one of the most amazing situations I have been in. Ziva’s courage, calmness and instinct guided us the whole time. The vet Đorđe Savić, PhD, attended the birth. He supervised the birth and checked the vitality of each puppy.
The Dad of our ‘litter A’ is a wonderful six-year-old male Braxton (Braxton Of Allstarman`s Clan) who lives in Novo Mesto in Slovenia with his friend Mrs Janja Beg (Pasarna Novo Mesto). Braxton was born in Germany and both of his parents come from Sweden.
Braxton is a wheaten terrier of a wonderful temper, very devoted to his owner but also very interested in the people around him. He is a loving dog and loves to socialize with people, especially if he is the center of attention. All tameness aside, he is a strong male, with strong structure and very stable and calm temper.
Braxton also did the tests as Ziva – so puppies from our litter A can be a hundred percent sure that they don’t carry any genes for hereditary diseases their parents have been tested for.
- Malignant hyperthermia (MH):
- Degenerative myelopathy (DM):
- Protein Losing Nephropathy (PLN):
Locus A: Ay / Ay;
Locus B: B/B.
Dad Braxton is a true beauty and he would always get great marks, which his championships show.

Growing and developing at Mom Ziva
The complete development of all 10 babies went without problems. All babies are alive and well. 10 days old they crawled out of the helping box, day 15 they started opening their eyes and by the day 17 they could all see. Although Ziva breast fed them all the time, at 18 days old they got their first additional meal, or not a mom-meal. Of course, it was a try and easy getting used to it, but by the day 25 they all knew how to eat and had one additional meal a day
The only baby that had some difficulties is Axentie who didn’t gain enough weight the first few days, but day 15 he began gaining weight normally and he caught up with his brothers and sisters – now he is growing into a beautiful male. It is important to emphasize that Axentie, even when he didn’t gain enough, ate mom’s milk and additional meal quite regularly and always fought to be first to eat.
Besides the physical, the attention was paid to the development of socialization and mental stability of puppies. So, we strived that after the day 15 a lot of children and people of different profiles and sensibility come to our house. In three months, the babies met around a hundred people, they got used to the noise of home appliances, driving in a car, conversations of different intonations and outside conditions and noise.
After the second polyvalent
All puppies are accustomed to bathing, haircutting, combing. And also they are used to standing still on a table and being calm (occasionally going well, on other times not so well).
