Looked into them, but there weren't any breeders near me. Bought an Ovcharka to go along with my Kuvasz instead. Good luck with the Kangal. :thumbs_up:

They are now the national dog of turkey which put an export ban on them for some reason.

Just got lucky,a guy in northern saskatchewan just started breeding them to keep wolves away from sheep,got the last pup,quite a rare dog.

One video on you-tube claims they have the highest bite force of any dog recored,hard to say if its true.

I think it will probably feed itself - on anything, live or dead!
I am sure there will be plenty of "entitlement class", "I'm a victim" morons for it to feast on if the SHTF. The thing might get bored catching them so you will have to train it not to play with its food. (...was that my dark inner voice typing again?)

Yup,if there is a shtf it will take some resources,but i think it will be worth it.

If somebody is scoping the place they'll think twice,and if they come in the dogs will know.

Lots of things to take on a farm,even without a shtf.

Lots of 4 legged things that need chasing off everyday out here to.

I'll try to figure out how to post some pics.

Ye Gods, what a monster! I predict a serious lack of visitors at your place.
