The ANCD is also a new breed in progress. The founder, a geneticist, beginning in 1991, has created a black phase "wolf look-a-like" composed of herding, northern, retriever, sheep guarding, and sighthound breeds. Specifically the following breakdown:
Retrieving Group: Black Lab
Sheep Guarding Group: Great Pyrenees
Sighthound Group: Greyhound
The founder of this "noble breed" can be contacted through the ANCD web site. There is no wolf or wolfdog used in the Noble breeding. Do not confuse the Alaskan Noble with The North American Noble Dog bred by Noblepawz. They are not one in the same.
Noble family... Pepsi, Cola & XenaIowa, son of Pepsi
4/14/11: Introducing Dresselhaus Rook @ Buckhorn. Son of Dresselhaus Pepsi and Dresselhaus Starbuck, born 2/15/11. CERF clear. He is not a solid black phase like his mom Pepsi and has a very mild temperment. We anticipate he will be more "wolf" marked like the Aatu Tamaskan and should develop a nice masking. His eye coloration will likely be brown unlike his parent's yellow. See picture gallery for Rook photos.
5/22/11: Rook is growing nicely. Like his Tamaskan brother he is raw feed. At three months old he is closing in on 30 lbs and 18" at the sholder. In comparison, Juneau at that age was 20 lbs and is now 3.5 years old and 67 lbs. Rook stands with his front legs close together with feet turned slightly outward. His tail is full and straight with no signs of any curl, unlike many of the Tamaskan dogs. He and Juneau play and wrestle constantly and seem to enjoy each others company.
11/2012: Rook is closing in on 2 years. Stay tuned for health testing. If all passing, then he will be available for stud.
Under construction. Check back for Rook updates and additions as they become available.
