Black Locust Katahdins
Kangal Dogs, why?
Kangals are livestock guardian dogs originating from Sivas, Turkey. They are said to be strongest dogs in the world and hold the crown for the top bite. These dogs have been used as guardian dogs to protect sheep and other flocks against bigger predators such as wolves, jackals, and bears.
Why do you need something so fierce?
Would you trust ANY dog(s) to protect your investment? This farm, these animals are our investment. Kangals have a reliable and predictable temperament. Fierce protectors yet, gentle livestock guardian dogs.
Cahide means hard working, no doubt we named her correctly.
Cahide is our first purebred Kangal. We had our first experience with a Kangal cross and we knew we needed more. Xena is our Kangal cross and she is an absolute amazing guardian dog.
We also have a Maremma, Sophie, she is extremely docile. She is amazing dog as well, but she would gladly be an inside dog if we let her.
What is next, you ask...
We decided after several years of buying replacement guardian dogs that we would keep an open mind about possibly breeding for replacements. WE breed our Katahdin sheep, Dexter's and goats for that very purpose, why not consider it. We are here at that crossroads. Cahide has passed her preliminary OFA, hips and elbows. She has passed the appropriate tests to become a breeder, thus far. We have secured her a boyfriend. His name is Kaan. What happens next?
