Once again in May, 9 puppies were born (May 11), 6 girls and 3 boys, from the first successful artificial insemination with frozen semen for the breed in Germany. This achievement is the result of a joint project between SFAA members Dominique de Caprona (Shi'Rayân, USA) and Patricia Lauer (Sheik el Arab, Germany)

Congratulations Aljana ! and best wishes for many years of great companionship to their owners in Spain, Germany, the Netherlands and the USA.
