Nikita (RKF reg'd name Hafsa Imperial Asmira) was bred by Olga Rakaeva, the Vice President of the Moscow Kennel Club and owner of Imperial Kennel. Olga was kind enough to hand-pick Nikita for our program, selecting her for her great potential to be a dog who will 'do it all'; personal and property protection, conformation (showing) and being a devoted family member.
Nikita's dam, Saulet, is a serious guardian dog who has been tested and proven in protection work. Not only is she a loyal guardian, she is also a beautiful and well proportioned female. Nikita's sire, Shaman, is an evenly-tempered, powerful dog with stunning conformation. Nikita takes after Shaman in looks, being nearly a clone of him in female form.
We began showing Nikita competitively in June, 2019 and she became a Champion in September 2019. We will start her full course of health testing at approximately 1 year of age. She has already had her genetic testing completed, with a clear/normal result. She will continue to accompany us as many places as possible to ensure she is well adjusted and properly socialized.
Even at her young age, she is already demonstrating guardian instincts and has an intimidating, deep bark. She is a very happy puppy and is quite affectionate. Training her has been a joy as she is highly intelligent and food driven. She is a quick learner and impresses me daily with her intuitive, loving nature. She is a joy to have in the family and we love her deeply.
We are excited to see her develop and grow into the stunning, loyal guardian we know she will be.

While Nikita is still very young, we have had many wonderful comments from judges who she has shown under. We believe she has a lot of promise to do big things in the conformation world!
Nikita is currently the #2 Central Asian Shepherd in the UKC, behind our Mishka who is currently #1.
For consideration for our breeding program, Nikita will be fully health tested through OFA, PennHip and other reputable, nationally recognized organizations.
