Patagón - a race of giants

Patagon, a female from the Giants litter

The first mention of the Patagón giants came from the writings of Ferdinand Magellan where he described what he experienced on his famous voyage.

While exploring the coastline of South America en route to the Maluku Islands in their circumnavigation of the globe in the 1520s, Magellan described having seen native people twice as tall as he was.

Numerous other ship captains throughout the years that followed also claimed to have seen the giants on their travels, including 12 foot tall bodies.

It is believed by some now that Ferdinand Magellan and others were describing the Tehuelche or Selk'nam people.

However, both of those South American native tribes do not speak a language similar to the ones reported by Magellan in the 1500s.

That and a lack of evidence has led many today to believe that the giants from Patagonia were simply an elaborate hoax.

But who knows?

Maybe the “Land of the Bigfeet” is still out there in the forests at the southern most tip of South America.

Our precious fluffy giant red collar female is named after this fascinating story.

And she sure lives up to her name!

She has giant feet and is quite large compared to the others, especially for a female.

She and her sister, Elatha, are always the first to greet us with happy tail wags when we come out to the pen to be with them.

These two females (Elatha and Patagon) are extremely sweet-natured and loving.

They are currently for sale OFF THE WAITING LIST, but don’t delay.

The last two girls from the Giants Litter won’t be available for long.

The DireWolf Express is scheduled to leave the station on January 25th, 2024.

We have the preceding vet appointment on January 23rd.

We close all ticket sales for this DireWolf Express trip on January 22nd at 11:59pm EST.

Be forewarned - These girls are now on a first-come-first-served basis.

Once the contracts are signed, they’ll be gone.
