Anatolians aren't THAT uncommon in some areas where there's a lot of farms. I agree he looks like an anatolian mix or maybe another LGD mix.

Anatolian, and I still say some Spanish Mastiff. :P

I mean, this guy is a Spanish Mastiff:


I used to not think they were all that popular here in the US, but I saw two littermates listed on my local craigslist not too long ago. Whether they were pure or not remains to be seen, but the fact that someone was peddling puppies and calling them Spanish Mastiffs means they have to have gotten into the hands of someone disreputable at some point.

Wow, lots of the same guesses. That's what I thought too.
Yes, he's got black spots on his tongue.

It is not unusual for homesteaders to cross different breeds of livestock guardians together. Some do it because they believe in "hybrid vigor". Others do it because they can't find another of that breed near enough. And still others cross breeds because working ability is more important to them than pedigrees and purity. Anatolian x Great Pyrenees seem to be the most common cross.

I was gonna say lab x malamute but this makes a lot of sense actually.

I don't feel he has shepherd in him. Shepherds and I are not the right match for eachother. Every shepherd and shepherd cross that I fostered drove me up the wall.

^This -- Running into Anatolians and mixes isn't terribly uncommon in various places I've lived.

Anatolians and Akbash are the same breed.

In the south, anatolians are used quite often as LGD's. Since it gets pretty hot during the summer, and anatolians are relatively easy to come by, plus they have a short (albeit double coat).

Some neighbors of mine had two out with their goats. They had a litter of puppies last year. I think it depends on the area you live in.

ETA: bleh.. I read your post wrong Shai, but the info still stands. Anatolians seem to be far more popular than I thought that would be, at least around here.
