Darla's "Ironheart" Von Tudor
12/24/2022 Congratulations to Paul and family. I am so excited that you reached out to us, and hope that when you get this boy home on the 7th of the new year! I hope you share many pictures through the upcoming years of how this wonderful boy is doing. :)
12/19/2022 Updated pricing to include neuter, Rabies and micro chip. He is doing VERY well with his healing and crate training is down pat!
12/13/2022 Yesterday Ironheart was a big man! Had puppies and was a stud around town! Today... he is a stud around town with no more swimmers... lol!
If you know anyone looking for a beautiful boy, sensitive and intuitive to your feelings and emotions and would love a large breed companion dog in their lives, this guys will be ready for his new home after the first of the year!
He is too large to fly, so you must be willing to come get him, fly in and drive back, drive in and drive back, or use pet transport of your choice.
He is currently inside relearning crate training, baths (after he heals and stitches are out), how to be nice around the squirmy and FAST new kitten and all the cats, dogs, turtles, kids and commotion and going out to town with me, learning how to comfortably go on car rides, "hup" into the truck and take short trips to "peopleville" where we can hear other commotion, doors that open and close on their own and kids (never seen little people before!!).
This boy would be best as a single or second dog. He deserves your attention and that of the family, is a great hugger and loves being with his people.
Whines when in uncomfortable situations and needs reminders that all is well, but is learning that by doing good, chicken bites soon follow!
This boy is very tall and very large! Only weighing 114, he looks much larger! He will need someone that understands large dogs and the impact they have on their surroundings.
This is NOT a dog that will enjoy or understand dog parks. If you're looking for that, please go get a lab, golden, etc.
12/12/2022 Ironheart goes in for his neuter and rabies and micro chip tomorrow! He will stay in the house during his recovery and learn more about crate training, leash training (which he is great at already) and we will do visits in town to get used to car rides and noises he isn't used to.
Ironheart is a soft boy. He doesn't do well with significant change, in that he needs time to adjust. He will need time to get used to all things new, including his new home, new vehicles, new smells etc. He has only been at the farm, and shows his need to slow down and have time to adjust through his whining. He doesn't mean to whine when he finds things to be out of his control, and he will follow you and do what you ask, but would love hugs and cuddles and to be told it will be okay whole it is happening too.
Once he has adjusted to all the "new" in his life, he will be unstoppable!
11/22/2022 This boy is fantastic! Loves attention, enjoys time with people, great with other dogs and just an all around sweetheart.
Now that he has past on his genes to the project, he is looking for his forever home.
He will be scheduled for neutering and the cost will be added to his adoption when he goes to his new home.
This boy is too large to fly. His weight, plus the weight of the needed PP90 crate would exceed the 150lb limit from the airlines, so he must be either picked up, or you must find a suitable company/individual to transport him to you. Transportation is the responsibility of the new owner as is normal :)
If you have any questions about this boy, let me know and I look forward to seeing him with his new family soon!!
3/18/2022 In with Lucy prior to this month, this boy is fantastic with all the dogs here. Sweet, soft and a pleasure to be around. Still a bit of a whiner as he has always been, we will keep pups from him that do not whine to curb this in the future. :)

Ironheart X Leloo 2022
About the Litter (F-3 American Alsatian)
Leloo x Iron-Heart pups:
WEIGHT: 125 - 180
COATS: Thick, long and medium coats. Some may have thick undercoats. This litter will bring the best of both height and thick bones from Iron-heart, and long, dire wolf mane from Leloo along with her thick bone and body width.
COLOR: Dark black Silver sables, and possible tri-silver sables. Black faces with YELLOW eyes. These will be Dire Wolves. Guard hairs on shoulders and along the back and very muscular/girthy. Large feet and heads.
Tied 7/5/2022 with visuals throughout the day. Due 9/4/2022
9/3/2022 Leloo is doing much better this litter. Pups are warm, she is not the best at keeping them clean, but is learning. Everyone is resting and growing.
9/5/2022 Leloo did not have enough milk. Leloo had 9 pups total. 7 living as of today (9-5-22) 9/6/2022 Leloo has no milk. Puppies were moved to Pebbles.
Notes from Lois prior to pups being moved:
Birth notes :
pink collar; dark brownish black. heavy bones. white snow boots, pink pads- rear feet. Large female. Loves to sleep. looks like these 6 are even in temperament and content to eat and sleep and not move much.
purple collar was sucking on anything thus vulva juice.
Leloo is now back to sleeping. All pups now have more milk. Pink collar does cry out sometimes. big. I remember she was stepped on 2 or 3 times so this has made her more "aware" than the others.(Ameys assignment is to outcross to a bull dog a large bull dog breed with a smushed in face. Female large bully dog or bull mastiff. bulldogs have better personalities. Need shorter tails and smaller snout to correct a long snout)
Black collar pup: had to take collar off. pup could not move. leg caught in the collar all the time. this upset leloo. She is better now. Maybe now he will gain weight as he can find milk?
Tue. cold. not eating. warm blankets. There is no hope.
Grn collar pup, leg caught not able to eat. cold put on warm blanket with black. There is no hope. temp of room 77 degrees.
I can not believe what i am seeing. 9 thriving puppies all dying like before.
Leloo is panting in the hot closet. The bedding is dry. She does not curl up on the pups. She cleans them as she should but i don't think she keeps them warm enough.?
Leloo (no milk) out of Mulan and Qleanna (mr q x saigon). It can not be the Qleanna lines unless it comes from Mr Q.
3/25/22: Leloo had her pups and is possessive over them as is her sister Lucy which just had her pups also. Lucy went over to Ameys house and Leloo stayed with me in my bedroom. She had 13 pups of which only 6 has survived. She eats a ton of food! She was upset about the pups coming out of her and did not understand what was happening. She was so big in the belly she could not get around to the back end to clean anything up back there. She did NOT want her first pup and was kind of scared about it. Because I was there with her, she felt she needed to be at her best so i did my best to tell her that everything was ok. She finally sniffed the pup but it was better to not have them so she could get on with the next one. After the third pup she settled in with them. Her milk is coming in slowly. (too slow). Her sister Lucy enjoys motherhood better than this gal does.
Leloo walks with me without a leash and understands what 'go outside' means. She likes to be outdoors. She loves her kennel outside where it is her own bedroom so to speak. She does not really like other dogs or animals. This will probably be better once she is spayed. Because she was not 'trained' when she was young, this is what one gets, though she can be trained and will make a fantastic guard dog for someone. She is very scary looking. She minds her own business and wants others to mind their own business. She is not a fan of 'strangers' but will tolerate them if on a leash. She doesn't want to be a bad dog, she is very sensitive. Use food rewards.
Unfortunately, Leloo was unable to keep her pups warm enough, and the litter passed. We are currently waiting for the re-try of this litter with Ironheart.
1-29-22: Has been bred with Iron heart? This pup is very sensitive and reads body language. she does not like anything new. It takes time for her to adjust. Like her mom she is an escape artist. We are just now training her to come when called. She is a bold leader dog. In her season she has accepted other dogs but she is pretty much a loner dog. Once she has pups she will understand life better. She doesn't like to be bossed around or told what to do.
Ironheart X Leloo 2023
About the Litter (F3 American Alsatian)
We just learned the second litter from Leloo that was supposed to have been with Stan Lee... was instead with Ironheart!
Leloo is a 2nd generation Mastiff. Very large boned, large head, and stocky all around. She is not the tallest dog (27" or around there), but she is thick. This will lend to the thickness of her pups. Large pups are more docile, laid back and relaxed.
Stan Lee is out of Neera and Tudor. He is triple Boss and 3rd generation from Elwin, the white Alaskan Malamute in our lines. Boss gives him his size. This boy is only 1 year 1 month old and weighs around 135 and is around 29 inches tall. His thickness from Yukon and Tudor will lend to the puppies thickness as well.
Coats: Medium to Long coat, dark
Color: Newborns will come out black. Possible brindles, dark skin and reverse blacks.
Ears: Up - One or two may have a single ear up, or both down
Females: 105 to 120
Males: 115 to 155
Temperaments: There will be a few "mastiff" minded pups in this litter. They will be large and you will need to work on recall early with these guys, as they will have a "Maybe later" attitude. There will be one or maybe two if we are lucky, reserved, quiet and thinking pups. The largest of these will be kept for breeding, maybe the largest two if we have that many to choose from that fit the needs to continue breeding. The rest of the pups in this litter (depending on the size) will be all around great companions. They will not be pups that fetch, or run marathons, and they might only go for 3/4 mile walks to a mile at best, but they will be the pups that love to do lap therapy, they will love cuddles, they will use their sweet eyes to try and be as spoiled as possible. Great pups for kids and families. If you are a single person looking for protection or a dog that "looks" scary, this litter may have one for you.
Price: $3,800 and up
Remember, our dogs are companion dogs! Though any animal will guard their home and family, we do not raise working dogs!
These pups will be large and the largest of them may get up to 165. These pups can NOT do a lot of running around, playing, rough housing and NO DOG PARKS until they are at least 9 months old. Contracts will state that you are aware that their joints will be slow to fill and their bones will be LARGE. Our dogs are companion dogs, meant for you and your family, not play toys for your other dogs. You must be aware of this and be ambassadors for the breed by ensuring that they be trained to know their size and for you, as owners, to understand that some people are afraid of large dogs and you must be responsible to ensure that your large dogs have manners to ensure they do not frighten anyone without meaning!

Ironheart and Lello tied for the 1st time January January 23rd 6 PM. Puppies should arrive the 16th through the 26th of March. Pregnancy is not yet confirmed
2/28/22 I am calling a 75% confirmation as of today. I believe she is pregnant.
3/28/2022 Unfortunately, God chose to take these beautiful babies to heaven where we know we will see them again in time. Leloo will be re-bred with Ironheart again next season.
Prediction: Possible Litter
Why? Because Iron Heart is the only male that i would trust to be with this gal. Iron Heart can and will take care of himself when she thinks she is dominate over him.
What we shall get: Silver Sables with yellow eyes. Black masks. Fantastic size and girth. Dire wolf looking dogs. We shall be keeping the shortest tails without curl. We might keep them all?
Head: dire wolf girth
Muzzle: Black and some hybrid to no masks.
White Spotting: Some but few. All skin should be black. Those without black skin will be sold
Ears: All erect, some slow to rise. Largest pups will have the weakest ears. Might take 8 months to rise completely on the large pups.
Colors of pups: Darkish when born. Some pups will be light in color and lighter as they get older. May have some brindles. Silver sables. May also have some SOLIDS.. a bit of yellow genes in the creamish pups. Some pups will be cream sables with the black points and some black tipped guard hairs. Most will be silver sables with dark points.
Coat: Most will have thick coats med/longish but there will be a few with shorter coats.
Furnishings on muzzle: Small amount in some pups, to none in some.
Size of pups: All pups will be large and giant Dire Wolves. 160 - 190 lbs a few might only get to 130ish
Cost: Very expensive dire wolves.
