December 23rd 2015 - NEW LITTER ANNOUNCEMENT !!
New Vala Liburna tornjak puppies are expected in the second part of February 2016. Mother of this litter is my shadow - Vila. She is 6 years old strong and big female, very nicely built. This sensitive girl with beautiful character gets easily loved by anyone that gets a chance to know her. I call her "my dog" or "my shadow" as connection between us is huge. She is mother of our "B" litter and grandmother of our "J" litter. If all goes as planned this will be her second and last litter. Hopefully one little girl will stay and live with us to continue that breeding line. Vila is daughter of famous Roni (Hafiz) and our Lyra (Kanga). In that breeding line we usually get strong and very well built dogs with good health.
Father is young boy Miško and this will be his first litter. He complements our Vila in many ways and we surely hope this combination will give some nice dogs with qualities of their parents. Miško is not huge boy but very well built and connected dog, agile, sound and with really nice, typical character. He possesses many of breed qualities I wish to preserve and have in my breeding. Miško is working dog that lives with and takes care of sheeps and goats.
This pedigree is heavily influenced by breed legends Roni Hafiz and Šarov Štampalov.

New Vala Liburna tornjak puppies are expected at the beginning of May 2015. It will be 4th generation of Vala Liburna tornjaks.
Our Malina, co-owned with family Barišić (that takes great care of her and loves her very much), is 3 years old athletic female with lot of ideas on her mind. She probably got that from her mother Istra that lives in our home and through grandmother Bura that also shares home with us. What is for sure is that she got their nicely shaped head and beautiful balanced movement. Of course her father Lemi with grandfathers Sjever and Faraon contributed in that part giving more bone and great structure to this girl. It will be nice to see this 5th generation of puppies out of dogs that we live with, follow and know them to their souls.
Medo is almost 8 years old dog still in great form. Nice structure, bones and great movement make him hopefully a good pair for Malina. Not to forget he is grandson of famous Šarov Štampalov, dog that in a big way shaped tornjak breed and type.
This pedigree is full of nice dogs, most of them, specially from mother's side I've seen in live. Many quality dogs bred or owned by great people that work to build this beautiful breed are of course included in this pedigree.
