    Oh! I hope you don’t mind, but I like to keep track of all the owner websites on our American Alsatian Network site. I’ve included Fenris’ new site there. You can find it on If you would rather not include your site there just let me know. Your pictures are amazing and I love keeping on with how he’s doing.

    Oh my gosh, my heart is just melting. A friend recently showed me this breed and I fell in love with them. This is the breed I definitely want to own at some point. It just sucks that I live all the way in Pennsylvania and the only good breeders I can find seem to be in Oregon. The part that really got me with this beautiful dog is the fact that I wanted to get a boy and name him Fenris too. Hopefully someday!

    We are interested in owning an Alsatian. But I have read that they are not really tolerant of hot weather. We live in Clovis, adjacent to Fresno in the San Joaquin valley where from June thru September it is around 100 degrees (97 to 103). Do you have any input since you are the only person we have found in CA that has Alsations. Would clipping them in summer for a somewhat shorter coat be possible or in your opinion help at all? Also do they take to or love water at all, as my thought was to provide a wadding pool in summer ? Any advise,or insight would be appreciated. Also if you could briefly touch upon characteristics and health of your Alsations we would appreciate it.

    Thank you

    Hi Rick,

    We live in San Francisco so it never really gets too hot here. We did spend a month down in LA last summer and it was in the 90’s but Fenris did not seem to mind the heat as much as I thought he would. I did not shave him but I did make sure he always had a good brushing to keep the undercoat thin. I believe it gets fairly hot in the summer months in Oregon where his breeder lives, so that might be a good question for her. Fenris does like to spend time in the water, but does not swim very well.

    As far as health goes, we have not had any issues so far. He turns 2 years old next month. Characteristics: He is a friendly, loves kids, and very loyal. He is an amazing dog, I love this breed!
