Beautiful dog, He was a yr old. His owner told me he is the only one in Canada. She brought him over herself.

look like sheepdogs? Reminds me of the cartoon where the wolf is after the sheep and they punch in at the beginning of the shift.

lol Doggylover, good memories you just brought back. Very unusual dog I must say.

They look to have a body structure similar to the sight hounds from that region except bigger boned. So I would bet there is some of these hounds in their breeding a way back when.
