I met quite a few CAO's and while they were nice dogs when their owner was there to tell them I was acceptable (er, invited? I guess...) I wouldn't even think about breaking into her house or threatening her, because I have no doubt the dogs would have stopped me.

I would like one in the far future, but like you, I plan on having some acreage and keeping horses and livestock, not living in the suburbs with one.

which country is he located in? you don't really have a dog culture in any islamic country (although it is developing in Iran) so you don't have widespread ownership of dogs even from the neighboring country let alone 3 or 4 countries away. there are native LGDs in Iraq that are not as big (70-90#), they are absolutely ferocious & would meet the trucks 400-500 yds from the flocks. i had to get rubber rounds to back them off. the sheperds appreciated it because other units had just shot them and they need them to keep predators out of their sheep.
in afghan they have a large ovtchartka type called a sage kooche supposed to be pretty ferocious as well.

This thread makes me miss Oriondw! His Caucasian was such a cool looking dog.

They are among my favorite LGD breeds. I really admire the breed for their intensity, but they would do poorly here in the heat.

He is in Afghanistan. I'm going to try to steal one of his pictures. He has a video of an adult dog that looks just like the puppy and it is on top of a roof barking at the troops going by. There is a kid there shoveling stuff, and the kid goes over and tries to push the dog off of the roof with the shovel, and the dog attacks the shovel and yanks it off of the kid. My husband thought that was hilarious, and the dog was ENORMOUS.

Cute! But if I'm not mistaken that looks like a central asian shepherd, not an ovtcharka.

Same here

I totally fell for the breed and if I lived someplace cold could see having one -- would never replace having Filas though, even though they are very similar in temperament and intelligence.

ETA the big one in the first picture and the small guy in the second picture are not the same dogs. They think that they are related, though.

Interesting. I think you're right.
