I see that Juneau will be a new big brother soon to an upcoming litter due from his breeding kennel. Please, if purchasing a puppy from this litter make certain to obtain puppy insurance. Medication for Juneau costs approximately $250/month without insurance. According to experts there is a 25% possibility of one of these pups inheriting epilepsy as Juneau did. Others out of this litter will likely be carriers, so if you intend on breeding please be aware that you too could pass along this heart breaking disease. Testing to rule out other reasons for your dogs seizures run around $2000+ and bi-annual blood work ups over $200 per. Insurance will definately help you with these costs as long as you sign up for them prior to any health issues surfacing.
Also a quick note: Juneau is from RPK's very first Tamaskan litter out of Tasha and Moose (litter of ten). He was born in December of 2007, not 2006 as RPK advertises.
