Anatolian Shepherd Dog
Naturally Protective Nature


The Anatolian Shepherd originated in Turkey many
centuries ago.   He is one of several large guarding breeds
from that country.   He has been put to use in combat duty, as
well as for hunting big game.   Today, however they are used
as working dogs, to guard the flocks.   The Anatolians have
not only strength, but swiftness as well, and can dispatch
any wolf foolish enough to threaten his flock.

Anatolians are alert, intelligent, calm and instinctively
protective.   They are courageous, loyal and highly adaptive,
suspicious of strangers, and rather territorial.   His body is
rugged, powerful and impressive, possessing great strength,
endurance, agility, and balance for his large size.   They are
responsive to their masters, but due to an independent
nature, can be slow to respond to commands.
