    It's like a pony. The dog is enormous. I knew of a Turkish Sheepdog that hung out at a playground & watched the kids. If a stranger stepped onto the property, the dog would position himself between the kids & the stranger. The herding instinct was that strong. One of the few dogs that would keep a pure genetic line if mankind was wiped from the Earth. They have been herding for probably 1,000s of years, and they view any other dogs as a threat to the flock. They only breed within their own species ( naturally ). They have actually evolved to resemble the sheep they herd.

    Probably the best defense against predators when it comes to protecting a flock. I imagine they are expensive; but how much did your loss cost you? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Contact Us - Rocky Mountain Kangal | Missoula, Montana

    For pups picked up you save the $400 shipping cost and also get a $500 discount for a total price of $2,000 picked up. Depending on pup quality, age, gender, guarantee, contract, buyer, location, parents and pic of litter. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- The large Turkish dogs around 36" 180lbs run between 40-45mph

    That doesn't look like a dog that would be intimidated by a coyote.

    My cousin has an Australian Sheepdog that is really big and really smart. He has her for companionship and urban security. She's a good protector of the wife and kid, too.

    I've seen cattle dogs jump up on the backs of cattle, to view the herd.

    I have a JR mixed with Rat Terrier-she's bigger than a JRT, weighs about 25 lbs. She isn't fearless, because I got her at a shelter and she'd been mistreated. Most of her fears have to do with children and teenaged boys. She's also afraid of the really stupid Rott/black lab mix that lives next door.

    She's not afraid of cats or the wild animals in the area. She thinks possums want to play when they hiss at her.
