When you enter the premises, you will be warmly welcomed by our dogs. The two Appenzell Mountain dogs, Sahbi and Senna, stay with Marc and Mariska. Sahbi is a free dog who likes to go her own way, but Senna always stays close to Mariska. She has lived eight years on another farm and is a former puppy of Noxy. Noxy has always lived with Marc and Mariska and January 4, 2011 she was quietly put asleep at the age of almost 13 years.
Puk is the small dog of Jos and Maria and usually lives in Dronten. Every now and then she comes on the farm. Musta, Joris and Natasja’s dog, is a hybrid labrador/german shepherd. She entertains herself with all kinds of dog toys, but also with branches of trees or a potato that rolled from a truck.
The youngest inhabitant at De Kandelaar is Tahra (dog). Tahra was born on 7th February 2015 and was not planned! Her mother, a Swiss Mountain Dog was visited by neighbouring dog‚ Rover‘ an Appenzeller Mountain dog. Unfortunately, Tahra’s mother died in a car accident when her puppies were only 7 weeks. Now, this “second” Tahra’s task is to greet guests cheerfully.
