Good With Dogs:⬛⬛⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜
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. There is profuse feathering on the thighs, forelegs, and tail; with the fur more distinct at the ruff. Either coat is non-matting and weather resistant. The only coat allowed for the breed is solid white.
Some lines of Akbash's have extra dew claws on their back paws, while some don't. It depends on the pedigree of the pup.
Here in Utah there are many sheep farmers that use the Akbash as guardians. I myself live in the city and my Akbash(Zeus) is a family dog. He is an amazing dog!
They are amazing flock guardians! Good with people too! My boys hang out with my preg. milk cows for the duration of their pregnancy. They are cautious to keep their distance after the calf/calves are born because the moms can be too protective (I watched one cow chase down a coyote because it came into her field!) The boys will chase off any predators that are even close to their territory! We used to have coyotes bold enough to come up on the front porch! My neighbors love them too, Not a single coyote has come anywhere near either of our properties since the boys reached maturity! And I'm not talking about 40-60 acres... I'm talking in the hundreds of acres!!! Great guardian, gentle spirit, loving hearts, beautiful to look at... and will chase a coyote for miles!!!
Its his way of being with you and protecting you. I have found the Akbash to be an amazing affectionate breed. Mine always lays on my feet or is somehow always touching me.
