Elite Guardian, huh?

Looks like it.

The Ovarchka is huge even compared to the GSD.

Beautiful though!

I have to agree that they are good guardians like the Filas, Anatolians, etc...

This is a good article on the Ovcharkas: http://www.molosserdogs.com/modules....ntent&tid=1224

Katya's just beautiful. Gunnar looks like he's got a bad case of puppy love, lol!

She is absolutely stunning.

Around 500 total in states.


They endure hot weather much better then most breeds as well as not being cute cuddly bears

Appearences can be misleading.

Actaully Katya doesn't fair so well in the heat and perfers to lay inside in the air conditioning when it is hot. I know it is that she can't handle the heat because left to her own devices she would perfer to stay outside all the time if she is comfortable.

There are only a small number in the U.S., not only because they are super expensive but also because there are only a few select breeders who have a long waiting list and a huge application process you need to go through first.

With their families and people who are properly introduced the CO is a big teddybear but don't EVER approach one without the owner being in control of the dog because they could do some serious damage to a person.

Katya came from ThunderHawks Caucasians and her AKC name is ThunderHawks Finnish Princess Katya, she just turned three years. They also spay/neuter before the pups are sent to their new homes to prevent the breed from being mixed.

Here is another good website to check out, ThunderHawks is the only breeder recommended on their ethical breeder list!

Our dog are somewhat of litter mates

My pup is a year and a half younger but we got him from the same breeder.


Im surprised that she cant handle the heat though. We live in florida and my guy does great even in midday heat in the summer.

Yeah, never approach a caucasian from behind or without warning the owner. That can and will put most caucasians into protection mode.
Doing that is a very poor life choice

How come Katya doesn't look like this dog, if they are both CO's?
