Very intelligent and independent, a well-socialized Moroccan Aidi is a friendly Molosser, but not a people-pleaser by any stretch. Neither vicious nor overly territorial, the Chien de l'Atlas is nonetheless a committed and capable property protector and can be unfriendly towards strange dogs. Even though it is fairly lupoid in facial features, this is a typical mountain Moloss breed of the light "bear" type, well adapted to the extreme weather conditions of the region and valued for its resilience and stamina. Aidi is a well muscled, deep chested dog, although quite a bit leaner than most Molossers. The coat is strong and harsh, usually around 2 to 3 inches in length.
This wonderful dog comes in a variety of white-based colourings, but pure white, red, fawn, brindle and tricolour dogs are commonly found as well. Average height is around 25 inches.
