So you’re looking to adopt an Slovensky Cuvac, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “The Slovensky Cuvac’s breed characteristics conform in type with those of a mountain dog of firm constitution, impressive appearance and thick white coat. He has a strong bone, a lively temperament and is vigilant, fearless and alert. For centuries, he has been accustomed to the harsh climate of the Slovakian mountains, especially the Tatra Mountains. His vigilance and alertness helped to give him his name, as the Slovak word cuvat means to hear. The Slovensky Cuvac is boundlessly faithful and courageous and always ready to fight off any intruder, even if they are bears and wolves. In order to distinguish him from wild animals in the night, he is, according to ancient tradition, only bred in white.”
An Slovensky Cuvac typically ranges from 58.42cm to 69.85cm in height, and weighs from 30.84428116kg to 43.99845989kg.
