We picked her up yesterday. Didn't get home until late so this is the first chance I have had to get her pictures up.
She is 10 weeks old.

I was Googeling Caucasian Ovcharka and see that she is a Russian breed,a mountain-dog,the breed is one of the oldest breeds of dogs.
Lots of interesting stuff,I had never heard of this breed before beautiful Lukka.
They even mentioned how bear-like they are,but with the temperament of a friendly giant.
I cannot wait for more pics,Lukkas mom,so now you know,ok:lovestruck:
So glad to have you back:thumbs up

Lukka'sma

Is she the same breed as Lukka was?
Cindy
Yes Cindy she is a Caucasian Ovcharka the same breed as Lukka

omg look at those blue eyes :lovestruck: look at those big paws but ... but .... where is her ears ? :confused:

Well, this may cause a lot of controversy with some members but here it goes. The ear flaps of this breed get docked at three days old. The reasoning for this is that the working dogs that get into a fight with a predator get their ear flaps sheared and cut and it makes for quite the bloody mess. So the ear flaps are removed leaving predators nothing to grip onto. I know how much flamming I may take because people consider this mutilation, but it's done by the breeder and it is what it is. Lukka had her ear flaps removed as well.
You are more than welcome to show up and visit at any time.:)

WOW :lovestruck: .....she is STUNNING !!!!

Congratulations on your new furbaby and I also love the name.....isn't it Russian for "loved one"? :cloud9:
I was looking at a Russian name site when I first saw this name and it said it meant "little bear" knowing this breed that name suits a puppy very well. I have been told by different people (none of them Russian) that the name is masculine and a derivative of Micheal, others have said it means small size :shrug: I get offered lots of differing opinions on what the name means.:shrug: I liked the name as soon as I came across it and it just stuck in my head, so for me it is a girls name and it fits her very well.

I will post some more pics as she grows chico, and they grow so fast I'll have to keep the camera charged all the time.:)

Thanks to everyone for welcoming little Mishka into the family here. :)

LM,I named my dog Mishka after a dog I knew in Sweden,she was a beautiful Collie,her owners were Hungarian.
I would say it's a girls name for sure.
I don't think you'll get flamed any time soon,maybe I will:confused:but if the ears are done early enough and with proper care it should be ok,after all,you did not do it yourself.

Mishka is gorgeous,she has amazing looking eyes.

Rottielover

No flaming from me either, you got her from a COE breeder, which means she follows the breed standards, plus you did not do it yourself.

She is a beautiful girl :lovestruck:. I am so happy that you have some new puppy love to help heal your broken heart, I know Lukka would approve :).

Lukkasma, being of russian origin, I can confirm to you that mishka means little bear, could be both feminine or masculine, no matter. but also could be a short of Michail, as you have mentioned.

I agree, it does suit her very well!! :thumbs up
