Big weekend for Tornjak breed is behind us!!!
Special show on IDS Zagreb was the last show before FCI General committee makes final decision of full recognition of our native breed. For this occasion judge Jorgen Hindse from Denmark judged over 80 tornjaks from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovenia and will give his recommendation to FCI. As he said he had opportunity to judge big number of harmonious dogs with beautiful character. Croatian Kennel Club did great job in organizing this special show and made big spectacle in Best in show ring! For this occasion representatives from Croatian handball association came with famous handball player Ivano Balić and mascot of Euro 2018. (Tornjak) that will be held in Zagreb, Croatia.
All included people did well but dogs were just marvelous!!!! It was wonderful to be part of this historic spectacle for this breed. Vala Liburna dogs, Burin, Teuta, Neverin, Malina, Feral and youngest one Olujna Kiša with their owners helped all this happen...

August 14th 2016 - NEW LITTER!
A new tornjak litter born August 14th 2016. Tricolor girl Kiša will stay with us and hopefully continue maternal breeding line in the future.

Black and white male, Orkan Vala Liburna, will be available for new, loving home - we give advantage to co-owned home where he will be available for future breeding if he grows to satisfy breeding conditions. Father of the litter is working dog, livestock guardian.
Pedigree of new litter will look like this: You can find more photos of puppies, read more about this litter and browse gallery of ancestors here:

July 11th 2016 - NEW LITTER ANNOUNCEMENT !!
New Vala Liburna tornjak puppies are expected in mid August 2016. We tried again and this time we had little more luck. Mother of this litter is my shadow - Vila. She is 6,5 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 character.
Father is young boy Miško and this will be his second 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.
