Dakota Nov. 1999 - March 2013
A generation has ended. Dakota
(registered as Phoebe) was Rhett's sister. Her father was Bach and her mother was Betty. She died of old age at 13 years.
She lived a long and happy life with her owner Vikki in LA California. Her family deeply misses her and mourn their friend's
lost life. She was more than a friend, but a part of the family who loved her deeply. Rest in peace my dear.
It is with sadness in our hearts
that we announce the passing of a lovely, sweet companion named Scarlett. She was two years old and one month, healthy
and vibrant just a day before. She passed away quietly without pain surrounded by those who loved her dearly. Poisoning
is the suspected cause. Her passing leaves a tremendous ache in the hearts of those who loved her and she will be deeply
missed. She had the most beautiful eyes and sweetest kindness about her. She stayed close to the house despite
a brake in the fence surrounding her domain and never strayed. She loved to play with her hedgehog and her goofiness
was so endearing. Good-bye dear friend. We hope to see you again.
Slander was born January 10, 2010
out of Missy and Keno. He was the runt of his litter and was diagnosed with an enlarged heart at 8 weeks old. He lived with
a loving family and his litter mate, Taffy, in Riverside, CA. His short life had many wonderful memories and he will be missed.
Rhett was born in Ventura, CA in 1999 and
lived in the house of his birth throughout his life with his loving family. Rhett was an F2 out of his dad, Bach, (an
American Alsatian x malamute) and his mother Betty Boop, who were the second start of the greatness that has become
the American Alsatian of today. He was a mellow companion dog of excellent quality. He raised the next
three generations of American Alsatian: Bojik, Mylo, and Samson. Rhett was a great mentor and father figure. He
enjoyed his cat friend, named Harley, and loved to sleep on the back porch to watch the goldfish and koi as the warm California
ocean breezes brushed his face. He died from complications from Myelofibrosis at nearly 11 years old. He
will be sorely missed by all.
Zakk born 1994, died 2007 he was a big male who thought he was a mommy when we brought
home. He took care of many litters as he was quite nurturing and loving. Zakk lived a full life in southern California
until he died of old age at the age of 13. He was deeply loved and will forever be missed.
Bach was born 1997 and died of stomach cancer
2006. He would let Rhett, his son, ride on his back when swimming because Rhett was so lazy. Bach sired the litter
that would bring the American Alsatian back from almost extinction. Three females were kept from that litter to rebuild
the breed and help form the breed as we know it today. Bach was one of only three dogs in the litter to be solid cream
in color. He was a sweet, loving companion and without him this breed would no longer exist. We owe him our eternal
gratitude and thank him for being such a wonderful furry companion for 9 great years and father of many. He is deeply
Lucy was purchased
Lois in Oxnard CA in July 1996. She was with her family for nine wonderful years. Lucy was born on April
9, 1996. Her father
was Brat and her mother was Saba.
Lucy was a loving member of her family and she
traveled from California
to Missouri, and Alaska
with her family on military moves. She weighed 115 pounds and had a beautiful coat and
structure. Her temperament was perfect: protective of the kids, gentle
and loving. She had parvo as a pup (14 weeks) and was treated
repeatedly for a ulcerative colon in her adult years. She developed
arthritis in 2004 and pleurisy
later that same year. We had to euthanize her in 2005 as the pleurisy
began to overtake her and cause her great discomfort. Her family misses her every
day and will always remember their Lucy as part of her family.
Bolo was born on November 25th, 1991
in CA (mother - Kayak malamute, father - Ralph shepalute/akita) and from his 7th week resided in Camarillo
CA. He grew as a wonderful companion for two kids, six and eight years old. In 1994, Bolo moved to Denver, Colorado, but was back a few times performing stud
service for the advancement of the American Alsatian breed. Through his entire life he was very active and in pretty good
shape accompanying his owners on all vacation trips from coast to coast as well as on local mountain hikes. In his prime, Bolo
reached 140 pounds. The last two years of his life Bolo was on arthritis medication and his twice a day, two mile walk started
to take a little longer.
