Overview
A rare and elegant breed, the Akbash breed originated 3000 years ago in Western Turkey. Developed by shepherds as a livestock guardian, the Akbash was bred selectively for the white coloring so as to be discernable from predators. This breed was introduced into the United States during the 1970's and recognized by the UKC in 1998.

Temperament
Akbash's are not recommended for first time dog owners. They do best in a home with older considerate children or family members and pets they have been raised with. The Akbash will react aggressively toward intruding dogs, and remain suspicious and aloof thoward strangers. This breed is affectionate, loyal, independent, and gentle. Akbash's are ideal as home guardians, family pets, and workers.
Care
Frequent brushing is required to keep shedding to a minimum. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary using a mild shampoo to protect the weather resistant coat. Dry shampoo will suffice. Known health problems for the Akbash breed include hip dysplasia and OCD.
Coat
The Akbash has a double coat. The undercoat is dense and soft, the outercoat consists of longer, coarse hair. The Akbash's coat comes in two different lengths: Medium or long. The medium coat is flat and gives the Akbash a sleek appearance. The long coat is often wavy, never curly, with pronounced undercoat.
