Our Dogs

Jeanne

Jeanne was born 14 August, 2010, part of a litter of 14 puppies born to Mercedes and War Dance.    She is being raised at Cheetah Outreach to serve as an ambassador of the Anatolian Shepherd Guard Dog programme.  Her duties will include participating in fund-raising events and meeting school groups at the facility.  Jeanne was named after Jeanne Beryl Odd, who donated to Cheetah Outreach for 10 years and left Cheetah Outreach £10,000 after her death in 2010.

 Thank you Isla Monaghan and Marit Vryenhoek for adopting Jeanne

Massif

Massif was born 14 August, 2010, part of a litter of 14 puppies born to Mercedes and War Dance.  He worked as a guard dog on a farm in South Africa but when the farm was sold, the new owner did not want to keep him so he was returned to Cheetah Outreach, where he now serves as an ambassador of the Anatolian Shepherd Guard Dog programme.  He lives with his sister Jeanne at the facility where he greets the public.  War Dance’s spirit lives on in his son.

Thank you Peter Burgauer for adopting Massif

Sherlock

Sherlock is three-quarters bloodhound and a quarter Doberman. He comes to us from Green Dogs Conservation in Limpopo with whom we are in partnership breeding Anatolian livestock guarding dogs for farms in South Africa. Sherlock has been trained as a tracking dog to track cheetahs; he does this mostly by detecting the scent left by cheetahs using cheetah tracks. This is different from a scat detection dog that will search an area for cheetah scat and only focus on this one type of scent by using airborne molecules. Sherlock is at Cheetah Outreach as an ambassador to demonstrate how a tracking dog works and to explain the value of these dogs in cheetah conservation.

Thank you Annie Beckhelling for adopting Sherlock

 

Juliet

Juliet was born at Cheetah Outreach on 5 May, 2015 to Garland and Morrison. She remained with Cheetah Outreach as an ambassador of the Anatolian Livestock Guarding Dog Programme, meeting the public in encounters and attending fund-raising events. In addition, raised alongside one of our cheetahs, Romeo, and sometimes accompanies him on walks.

Thank you Versaille Products for adopting Juliet

In Memoriam

Jago

Jago is part of an ongoing educational programme designed to inform people about non-lethal predator control methods. Jago joined Cheetah Outreach in 2004 from Cheetah Conservation Fund, where he served as a livestock-guarding dog. Together with Kahlua, he now serves as an ambassador of the Anatolian Shepherd Guard Dog Programme, helping us to explain its importance in conserving cheetahs in Namibia and South Africa.

Kahlua

Kahlua joined Cheetah Outreach in 2003 from Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia, where she served as a livestock-guarding dog. Together with Jago, she now serves as an ambassador of the Anatolian shepherd guard dog programme, helping us to explain its importance in conserving cheetahs in Namibia and South Africa.

Kahlua lost her battle with leukemia at almost 13 years of age and we lost one of our longest serving Anatolian ambassadors on 7 April, 2014. She is missed by all at Cheetah Outreach.

Sukie

Sukie, a border collie, was born 3 April, 2000. She helped in raising Zaza and Savannah, our first cheetah cubs from De Wildt, and spent her last years providing companionship to War Dance, our Anatolian shepherd breeding male. Sukie never seemed to tire and her favorite activity was playing fetch with her old rubber ball.

Age finally caught up with her and she died on 13 August, 2012. She had an indomitable spirt and loving nature. We miss you so much, Sukie.

 

Merlin

Merlin was born 22 April, 1996 and was our first Anatolian shepherd livestock guarding dog ambassador. He came to our programme in May 1998 as an ambassador of Cheetah Conservation Fund's non-lethal predator control programme, which assists in encouraging farmers to share their land with predators. For many years, Merlin was a favourite with our guests who were fascinated by this amazing breed. In his later years, he enjoyed a well-earned retirement.

Merlin died on 6 August, 2008 and is deeply missed by all of us.
