Sante Fe, New Mexico
I have lived most of my life between Montana and New Mexico, finally settling in the outskirts of Santa Fe. Growing up, my family always had large breed dogs as well as other pets. This led my love for animals to develop at a very young age.
As a teen, I visited my family in California as often as possible. Here is where I was first introduced to the Armenian Gampr. My aunt, Rohana always had many at one time making it my favorite place to be, especially when there were new litters of puppies. I found the science and genetics behind the reasoning for pairing certain dogs to breed fascinating.
In 2013 I received my first Gampr. He was a special placement dog that I took in and immediately fell in love with. My second and current Gampr was born at the end of 2020 from special import parents on Tribble Hill Farm in Mississippi. With a mixed terrain of rocks, hills, arroyos, and fields, my Gampr gets to explore the 5 acres while keeping coyotes, bobcats and other predators at bay.
I hope to soon be in a position to have livestock however, at this moment I do not. I make sure to socialize and acclimate my Gampr with the goats and horse that live next door to us so as to ready him for his own livestock soon. Basic obedience training is extremely important to me to insure the best, well-rounded working dog.
I am grateful to be a part of the AGC community of responsible owners and breeders.
