So you’re looking to adopt an Central Asian Shepherd Dog, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Central Asian Shepherd Dogs are a natural protective breed that require a non-stop observance for the life of the dog. They are not for first-time dog owners. They were formed as a breed from natural selection during more than four thousand years in a vast territory, which spreads nowadays from the Caspian Sea to China and from Southern Ural to Afghanistan. The Central Asian Shepherd Dog is self-assured, balanced, quiet, proud and independent. They are very courageous and have a high working capacity, endurance and a natural instinct of territory. This breed is known for its fearlessness towards large predators.”
An Central Asian Shepherd Dog typically ranges from 64.77cm to 69.85cm in height, and weighs from 39.916128560000004kg to 49.895160700000005kg.
