gamprs of muddy acres 

Muddy Acres Farm is located in NE Alabama on the Alabama and Tennessee state line. We began this adventure after serving 28 1/2 years in the US Army and settling on our property that resides on the tail end of the Appalachian mountain range. We raise registered Nigerian Dwarf, Pygmy and Boer goats and most recently, rare breed chickens. We quickly realized the need to protect our herds/flocks due to the multitude of predatory animals such coyotes, bobcats, fox, hawks and owls. We researched the typical, more popular LGD breeds and thank goodness we stumbled upon the AGCA and the Armenian Gampr.

 

After extensive research and study, we petitioned the AGCA and began the process of importing our first girl (Aja) from Armenia. Our first year was both educational and rewarding and shortly thereafter we were asked to sponsor another Gampr that needed to be relocated to a working farm for rehabilitation. We were honored to be selected and entrusted with this opportunity. Shortly thereafter we adopted our first male (Khan). Since then, we have imported our beautiful white female (Luna) and added our youngest male (Bodhi). Our Gamprs live and work daily with their herd and spend a great deal of time with our family in the evenings and weekends. They're raised with kids, goats, chickens, cats and three house dogs. They are the ultimate LGD, protecting our livestock, our property and our family!

 

We are committed to preserving the heritage of this amazing land race breed, maintaining the purity of the Armenian Gampr line of working dogs by supporting the special genetics program in partnership with the AGCA.
