Cinco Deseos Ranch
Livestock Guardian Dogs
All who come here

From their eyes

There is nowhere to hide
--- Muso Soseki
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into

1 Corinthians 2:9

Who impels us to utter these words?
Who is the spirit behind the eye and the ear?
There the eye goes not, nor words, nor mind...
--- Kena Upanishad

NO puppies or grown dogs available now. SM and PM Litters planned for next year. Please check this page for updates. Please wait to request an application until I announce my females are bred later this winter (2018). Thank you!

Simply having a vet take an x-ray of your dog's hips and looking at it is NOT the same as the OFA process - do your homework and don't be duped - there IS a difference.
