Kangal is a breed of domestic dog.

and is the national breed of Turkey.Kangal, which weigh between 120-170 pounds (55-78 kg) full-grown, 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.

  5. Christine Says:

    This is indeed an impressive dog. However, the first picture worries me a little. What exactly is that man planning to do with that dog? I mean come on his junk is hanging right out and he appears rather pleased with the doggie… That is so inappropriate.

  6. I’m from Europe and i’m interesting about a pure Kangal dog.
    Please tell me where are you from?


  8. Christine, it’s a fanny pack. OK? So just relax or stop salivating. If that were his “junk” the story would be about “mastiff junk”.

    What I’d like to know is, How much do these things eat? I’ll bet it’s expensive to keep them. Is Texas weather too hot for this dog?

  9. I thought the same thing about the man’s ‘junk’ hanging out. But, than I looked at it closer and realized it was his treat bag or fanny pack. You can see the belt attached to it. The man needs to get a different color fanny ‘treat bag’ next time he takes a picture.

  10. dear, I am searching this kind of dog for years and reply me if you can provide Kangal and export to china, thanks a lot

  11. i am kurdish and i know they are really great dogs i have one of them , but if you want to buy one of them you can come to visit kurdistan because here the dogs are free/ no cash and if you are from U.S. you could get them they are not expensive
