Recommended Posts

Does anyone know about this breed? They are huge and very strong dogs. They protect livestocks on the mountains of Turkey. It is reported that they have killed wolves. They are also very loyal, intelligent and kind. They are also very fast and agile. The popularity of this fine dog is growing. Here are some pictures:

[quote name='Kat']Another name for the Akbash or Anatolian shepherd.[/quote]
The Sivas Kangal is Karabash. Karabash means "black head". Akbash means "white head". The Karabash and Akbash are related to eachother but they are different breeds. The Kangal is bigger and stronger.
