Dog Breed of the Day: Kangal Dog

Kangal_Dog_1

From Dog Breed InfoThe typical Kangal Dog is first and foremost a stock guardian dog and possesses a temperament typical of such dogs—alert, territorial and defensive of the domestic animals or the human family to which it has bonded. The Kangal Dog has the strength, the speed and the courage to intercept and confront threats to the flocks of sheep and goats that it guards in both Turkey and the New World. Kangal Dogs prefer to intimidate predators but will take a physical stand and even attack if necessary. Kangal Dogs have an instinctive wariness of strange dogs but are not typically belligerent toward people.

Since we’re not in Turkey we haven’t run across too many Kangal Dog owners out there.  However, if you happen to own one we’d love for you to send any pictures our way.  Also, if you have any videos or stories you’d like to share we’d be happy to post them here on the website.  In the meantime we hope you enjoy this gallery of Kangal dogs and puppies.  Be sure to click “next” beneath each photo to view them all!
