Anatolian Shepherd Dog Breed InformationAugust 23, 2017

The Anatolian is a giant breed who originated as a livestock guardian in Turkey. He is highly protective, and ownership of him should not be entered into lightly. He is suspicious of strangers and aggressive toward unknown dogs. He is not a child’s pet.He is very similar to the Great Pyrenees and the Kuvasz, but is more slender and agile.
The Anatolian Shepherd has many good qualities, but he is not the easiest dog to live with. If you want the calm, confident dog that is the Anatolian at his best, be prepared to do your due diligence to find him, and put in plenty of effort training and socializing him once you bring him home.
