Description

I created this site for dog owners, especially Molossoid type dogs, to come together as a community for the promotion and betterment of their breeds.  Here you can share info in a social setting and learn from each other.

I understand and agree with both you and Anthony. It is the commercialization of the breed which contributed to changing of the ancient moloss yo something that is more "suitable" for the pet dog owners. If you really want to observe changes in the breed follow the money and kennel clubs. Sad indeed.
One of the ancient molosser and very popular.

Thank you, Rex. You are so right in the way recent laws have affected our breeds. Combine local ordinances, national breed bans and crop and dock laws and many of our famous breeds are no longer what they used to be. This has seriously affected the rare LGD types in the "western" world where most of the dogs are placed as pets in urban settings.

Yes, sir. It is amazing to observe the result of many years of free-ranging dogs and to see how they morph. There are many flocks of goats and sheep all over the countryside and they always have a few dogs along. On one trip, we noticed that there was a dog standing behind the flock patiently as the flock move across the hillside. Wondered why he was just standing there so patiently and then from a gully, a couple of sheep emerged and walked past the dog. Then the dog followed them to the flock. Amazing. He knew there were a few stragglers and waited for them.

Interestingly they mostly look like Canaan Dogs - though some appear to be crosses which is not surprising based on their free roaming with the flocks. Passed one street on which there were more than 30 dogs sleeping.
Many strays and working dogs can be seen in Jordan.

The Central Asian Shepherd Dog is a name used to describe quite a few different breeds, actually. It should be noted that using the word "Alabai" to describe the C.A.O. is incorrect, since the breed known as Alabai is only found in Turkmenistan and is quite different than its other Asian cousins. Al…

    Hello Gary. I was thinking that do you think it would be possible if there was a article written about how MD started out and how it came to be today ? That would be cool. Maybe you could right about it in the future? Because that would be cool. Of course if you don't want to I am fine with that.
