Norwegian Buhunds available - update July 30, 2017

 Gabby is expecting a litter in September 2017.  Send an email to me at Linda@zodiacranch.com for a puppy application. 


I have been a Buhund breeder since 1997.  All my breeding stock have been checked for hip dysplasia, and their eyes are checked yearly for cataracts, and the results of these tests are recorded with OFA and CERF. 

 

I normally charge $1000 for non show males, $1250 for non show females, and $1500 for all show prospect/breeding puppies. These prices may increase from one year to the next. 

 

Before acquiring a puppy, I require an application for puppy ownership be filled out.  If you are interested, please fill one out, it just helps me remember who I have been in contact with, and that puts you in line on our waiting list for upcoming puppies.   I will keep you on my waiting list and let you know when the puppies are born, at which time I would collect a $400 deposit to hold the puppy until it is 8 weeks old.  I can take credit card payments through Paypal or Square.   Email me at linda@zodiacranch.com to receive a puppy application


From time to time, we may have older puppies or dogs available that are being retired from our breeding program.  March of 2015 Gabby and Gretchen's sister, Cherokee,  gave birth to a litter of pups from our male Cato.  We have one adult female from that litter,  "Leila", available to go to a new home.  She likes people and kids, and our male dogs, but does not get along well with our females.  She has been neutered.  She would love a home with a fenced yard to run, maybe with another dog she could get along with, and with people that would have time to work with her through her issues with other dogs.  I think with training she could improve.  There is a video posted on this page of her when she was about 6 months old.  (She now has a family interested in her) 


I also have a young male born 12-22-2017 from Gabby's & Cato's last litter.   He was the pick of the litter, but I would consider placing him in a pet or show home.  He is a loving pup.


Feel free to give me a call or send an email, so we can discuss things some more, and to answer any other questions you may have.

 

Your application needs to be filled in, returned, reviewed, and you need to be approved to proceed.  The approval process only takes a couple of days once we get you application back. You can send it back by email, fax (248-685-7093) or mail.

Norwegian Buhunds at Zodiac Ranch

Rare Herding Spitz Breed


This "herding Spitz" is bound to make its mark in this country, as a sought-after family breed. In the country of origin, this dog was used for herding, hunting, and protecting around the farms in the rough climate of Norway. Extremely intelligent, and people oriented, they love to please. Medium size, easy care coat, and good disposition will make this breed your perfect companion.
In this country, there are Norwegian Buhunds excelling in obedience, agility and herding competitions.  There are also Buhunds in service as hearing ear and service dogs. 
As a family pet, they enjoy being with their "people".  Being an active breed they require regular exercise for their mental and physical well-being.  Average weight is 30-40 pounds.  They are a shedding breed, and "blow" their coat twice a year, but are a clean dog with little doggy odor.  They are also a vocal breed, using their bark to warn their family of strangers, squirrels, etc in their environment. 
We have been breeders of Norwegian Buhunds since 1997 and all breeding stock have hips OFA'd and eyes CERF'd yearly.  We have puppies occasionally.  To be put on our waiting list, please contact us for an application.  Feel free to email  call for a visit or for more information.
