Intolerant of strangers and aggressive towards other dogs, the Banzov is not an ideal choice for urban environments, although the breed responds well to obedience training and makes a fine companion and watchdog. Fairly lupoid in head-type, leaner and shorter than most mountain dogs, the Aromunac is a very fast and agile Molosser. Although very rare, the Tzintzar Banzov is still being bred for its working qualities, resulting in a variety of appearances, from short-coated and longhaired dogs to the rarely encountered bearded specimens called "Baraks", with no variant being preferred over any other.
Regardless of type, the coat is dense and weatherproof, most valued in white, but common in all shades, both solid and particoloured. Average height is around 23 inches.
