Akbash dogs were bred to guard sheep in Turkey. They are known to be protective of their flock of sheep, and bond well with the animals they grew up with. Akbash dogs tend to have a strong motherly instinct, which normally allow them to bond strongly with family and infants. However, they are protectors, and will bark or raise their hackles at unfamiliar creatures (Including people) who enter their "territory". As trained and socialized companions they are intelligent, loyal, affectionate, and generally non-destructive in the house. As I said earlier, Akbash dogs tend to be gentle and fond towards infants and young children, but tend to be suspicious of non-introduced strangers.
