Welcome to the Anatolian Shepherd Dogs International, Inc. Web Site

Various Anatolian photos

Anatolian Shepherd Dogs are regarded as flock guardians of the mountain molossian-type by the FCI. Large, rugged and impressive, they possess great endurance and agility. These dogs are tall and powerful, yet not massive in build. This magnificent ancient working dog presents an impression of functional utility without exaggerated features. Large size is important, but correct breed type, soundness of movement, overall balance with correct temperament should be given precedence so as to preserve working ability.
