Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A Kangal Dog is a Turkish breed of domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris), and is the national breed of Turkey. Kangal, which weigh between 90-145 lb full-grown, [9] was originally used as a livestock guardian dog. It is of an early mastiff type with a solid, pale tan or sabled coat, and with a black mask. The breed is often referred to as a sheep dog, but it is not a herding dog, but rather a flock guardian. It lives with the flock and acts as a livestock guardian dog, fending off wolves, bears and jackals. The Sivas Kangal Dog's protectiveness and gentleness with small children and animals has led to its growing popularity as a guardian for families as well, as it regards people as its flock and guards them with extreme devotion.show more
