Hi everyone, I know this thread is a bit old but in case someone is still viewing it, I wanted to mention soemthing quick about Anatolian Shepherd Dogs or "Kangal" as it is named in Turkey after the village it originates from. I live in SoCal but my family from Sivas, Turkey, and reading the post about the encounter with "Buddy" I wanted to say that it is very normal for this dog to behave like it did.
This dog does excactly what the encounter decribed, it protects under any circumstances ITS family. This dog will give its last breath to protect owner, family, and the livestock and, in return the owner and family would give their lives in return for this amazing creature. In Turkey this dog is regarded and honored higher than most humans and people would die for this beautiful creature. The Kangal dog is used in the mountains to help protect livestock from wolves and, until few decades ago, against Tigers. This dog is very playful with it's own family only and very intelligent. My dad, when he was a kid herding sheep, would send his dog down the mountian to go to our family home for my grandma to put food into the scarve that was wrapped around his neck, he than would go back up the mountain to my dad...Anyway, my point actually was to say that, don't be scared but feel blessed if you can get an Anatolian Shephard Dog. Only thing is, it will need lots of land to roam. You can not have a small garden and keep it there, that would be cruel. This dog will change your life and will make you become an even better person. God bless...
