Hello! (from Colorado)

Post by ThePaperMonster » Wed Aug 26, 2015 9:56 pm

Hello! I'm Ariel and fellow animal lover! I first came across the Tamaskan breed early spring of 2014 and kept it on my list of my "favorite" dog breeds (a list born from me spending way too much time reading about 50+ breeds and compiling my personal favorites :oops: ). Late this spring and into this summer I began to really filter them out to see which 1 or 2 breeds I preferred the most, as I'm planning to get a pup sometime between late spring and early fall of 2016, and Tamaskans came in at #1! I'm very excited to keep learning more and more about the breed as well as one day own a cutie myself. I've basically gone through most of the popular resources provided by Google as well as many breeders' Facebooks and know to avoid the fake US Blustag/RPK.

I think I sent most active breeders an email about their 2016 litter plans, but haven't hear anything back yet. If you guys have any tips about how to better get the conversation going, let me know! :D

Little about me:
I'm an active person who loves being outdoors and has grown up with dogs all their life. I will be living in a house with a backyard that backs to an open grass field. There are no children/teens in the household, only two other adults. And of the 3, two of them (myself included) have unconventional jobs that allow at least one of us to always be home 7 days/week.

Looking forward to meeting you all, this seems like a tight-knit community. :)

Howdy Ariel! Out of curiosity, what other breeds were in the running for #1?

As for getting in contact with breeders I'm sure you'll hear back from them in the next week or two.

Cheers,
Ben

@Katlin: Thank you!

@rhadamant: The Shikoku Dog (2nd place) and Finnish Spitz (3rd), but honestly, most of my love has gone to Tamaskans with Shikoku's as a close second. :P

Thanks, I hope so!

Hi Ariel, welcome to the forum!! I know quite a few of the breeders have been busy with their personal lives, but they should get back to you soon :) Don't feel discouraged. If there are no replies after a few weeks, it never hurts to send another email as sometimes some emails get lost or buried.
