This puppy is out of a beautiful Akbash female, the sire is Anatonian. They are working dogs! When they aren't raising puppies, they are guarding sheep. We have these dogs around the house as well as out in the pasture with our cattle and sheep. They are just as friendly as a pet with those of us that are around often, but are all business when anything strange comes into there territory. Our children play with them.... they aren't aggressive AT ALL with people. They protect the people, other animals or territory that the bond with. Would be such a loyal, loving pet or excellent guard dogs.
