Sire :-    Dam :-

An ancient breed that comes from the Asian Mountains and plains but is classified as coming from Russian. This is a strong independent breed that can think for himself. He must be well socialised as a young dog to live in more confined Countries. The Ovtcharka is a powerful and athletic breed with enourmous courage. Ears and tail are cropped in their homeland because if their fights with large predators. In Britain this will not be permitted!
The coat is straight, course and can be short or medium lenght with a dense undercoat, the skin is loose especially around the neck and a masive dewlap is typical
Colours are White, black, grey, straw coloured, russet (reddish brown), grey/brown, brindle, parti-coloured and flecked. .
