* ANNOUNCEMENT *
Deroche Appenzellers is pleased to announce that we will be expecting a litter of Appenzeller puppies on February 8, 2024. We are now accepting applications.
In February 2015, we added a new breed to our 'Cuddle Pugs' kennel. We chose an Appenzeller Sennenhunde because this breed is not too large and more importantly this breed has very few health concerns. We had been looking for an Appenzeller Sennenhund as a "Pug" guardian to bring with us when we moved to our property in Deroche. We wanted to have a larger dog around to help ward off predatorial animals in the area such as eagles, coyotes, etc. and that would also help round-up the Pugs for us if/when needed. We currently have three (3) Appenzellers, Ulric, Buca, and Daenerys.
Effective, July 1, 2023, the Appenzellers are a recognized 'breed' with the CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) in Canada in the miscellaneous class and are considered a rare breed with the AKC (American Kennel Club) in the US. Appenzellers can be registered with the CKC, AKC FSS (American Kennel Club Foundation Stock Services), and/or the AMDCA (Appenzell Mountain Dog Club of America). Appenzellers may participate in conformation and performance events. Appenzellers can also be registered with and enter UKC (United Kennel Club) and IABCA (International) conformation and performance events held across North America.
In addition to being registered with the CKC and the AKC, our Appenzellers are registered with AMDCA. All of our Appenzeller litters will be registered with the AMDCA so new puppy owners will have the option of having their puppy registered with AMDCA, AKC and/or CKC.
