Lukka on her first day at her new home. This was taken on March 31 2006. We had just returned from picking her up at the breeders home outside Cleveland Ohio. She was ten weeks old in this pic. She travelled so well for such a little girl, as the ride was six to seven hours long. The breed is Caucasian Ovcharka. You can view more of this breed at www.kofoto.org this is a site that post pics of this breed only.

OMG she is precious!!:love:
She looks somewhat like a Leonberger.
She is part of the flock guardian breeds too, isn't she? I just LOVE the flock guardian breeds.

Wow amazing looking puppy, and by the looks of that website will grow into an amazing looking dog. Reminds me of a big shaggy Saint Bernard.

This pic of Lukka was taken about three weeks ago. Age is seven months. She is growing so fast.
Weight now is 91lbs. She will continue to grow until close to two years of age.
Hard to say exactly how large she will get. Her dad is 163lbs. and 31 inches at the shoulder, her mom is 130lbs. Thanks to everyone who posted.

Technodoll, so far she displays great judgement in public. When approached by small children or small dogs she will lay down and let them approach her. What a darling. However with that said she also is very protective when on her own property. I reassure her when all is well and she takes that as a sign to lighten up and for the most part she settles down. On a couple of occasions she has taken a dislike to an approaching stranger on our walks and I have to be quite firm with her.
I don't expect she will realize until about 18 months old just what breed of dog she is, and then all this socializing to the point of exhaustion will pay off!
