Livestock Guardian Dogs

By doing some research I have just learned that Akbash dogs were "developed at least 3,000 years ago". Wowsers, it must be a very important breed to exist that long and still have a place in society.

That being said, here are some cool facts about Akbash dogs:

1) They weigh from 75 to 140 pounds
2) Range from about 27 to 34 inches tall
3) The Akbash is leaner than other Turkish livestock guardian dog breeds
4) It is believed the ancient genetics of the Akbash dog were founded on a combination of molossus and sighthound breeds
5) is happiest when given a job compatible to its breeding
