Is this a typical CAO?

Bwahahahahahahahaha....... So ear cropping and tail docking is what gives the breed its "breed", good to know.

    • Does anyone know if this is breed typical? I think the dog in the photo is young but it is supposed to be a Central Asian Ovcharka.

      • Well, if it isn't right now I'm sure it will be breed typical in another decade or so. I saw that the Kennel Club USA allows you to register your dog as purebred by paying $20 bucks via PayPal and faxing some pedigree over. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

          • Young dog. Not much of a head, quite small, but that might change. Muzzle is too long. Ear set is nice and small, but could be a bit lower. Too low of a set tail, why are they showing it with a curled or raised tail? The breed is supposed to have a sickle or saber tail that can hang to the hock. Is it curled at the end? I can't tell. It looks quite short in the photo if it is not a long dock. Not a flat topline, shallow in the whither and too much spring in the loin. Odd neck placement. I like the rear better than most CAOs, they usually have little or no angulation. All and all, an ugly puppy in an awkward stage, IMO. There is also a bit of extra weight on the pup which further alters the look. I wouldn't call anything typical with this breed. IMO, there is more variety in this vague standard than in any other, lol. I still feel that regional varieties should ring true and independent, but that's another discussion. Others prefer the variety available in this breed.

              • This is one of the many problems with beauty breeding. The breeders will breed for traits that they think look cool and sometimes this can lead to drastic changes in the breed type. The modern bull terrier and GSD are some of the most extreme examples of this. Both of these breeds used to be functional working dogs. Now they are deformed mutants.

                • It seems like this breeder thought a mini CAO would look nice so he or she bred for small dogs. I feel like this dog has some herding dog blood in it.
