Home Turkey

Turkey is home to a number of unique and interesting dog breeds, many of which have been bred for centuries by its native people. The Anatolian Shepherd, Kangal, Akbash and Coban Kopegi are among the most popular and recognizable Turkish dog breeds, all of which are large, powerful herding and guardian dogs. The Akita Inu, a smaller, more recently introduced breed, is also gaining in popularity in the country. All of these Turkish dog breeds have thick fur and strong, muscular bodies that make them suited to the cold climate of their native country.
