Default Canaan Dogs?

So there's this dog around here that i've seen at a couple trials. It is black and white and looks like a smooth coated border collie... only a little 'off'. I've always thought it was a border collie mix of some sort. Well, I was scribing today and that dog came up and I finally realized it's a Canaan dog. lol

I also realized I know absolutely nada about the breed. This dog is in starters(have only seen her run USDAA and there's only been 2 USDAA trials in the state). It seems pretty aloof compared to most herders. Is that correct?

Anyways, just a curiosity. I know nothing about the breed.

I've never met one, nor done much research (alright, probably not much help here ). But when I have researched them, everything says they are kind of odd dogs, kind of weird, warnings about them. I don't know personally though.

Most canaans I know are from the same breeder but they're all difficult to train, aloof, and catlike. They have a very special draw though, unique dogs.

Yeah this dog seems like it's mostly doing it's own thing a lot of time. Kinda reminded me more of a basenji than anything, which I guess makes sense considering they're pariah type dogs.

Yes, there is a well known Canaan bitch in our area, and I suspect this is one of her pups. Breeze (the dog) was aloof, but was also friendly and pretty playful. I've always admired them from afar, because as much as I love them I know they simply wouldn't fit into our household.

Ummm well back in the day I was on a puppy list for a Canaan puppy...litter on the ground, deposit paid...then Webster fell into my life and I gave up the deposit.

But the point is I did a fair amount of research on the breed then, and since then have met quite a few of them.

I was disappointed at the time (not about Webster but rather about not getting the puppy), but looking back I consider it all as having dodged a bullet.

Wow, you have certainly intrigued me. What were the ones you met like?
