Central Asian shepherds are UKC guardian group, AKC FSS, and FCI Molosser grp 2



Please vist the club site for more into http://www.cassa.us

CAo are the Russian version of a landrace breed they found in the native areas they conquered during COld war.

They have mad a sub variety of the breed under the 2000 standard that was NOT accepted world wide or by FCI..

Rescue first buy second

We get a good number of these in rescue each year.

http://www.ovcharkarescue.org

Adoption fees around 300.00

Working lines run in the USA 1500 for a guardian or pet or working dog.
Higher for breeding picks depending on generations bred.
120-150lbs for males
Imports are costing much do to euro dollar.

Show or figthing lines run 2-3000 for not a pick . Based on size those lines are 150lbs-200lbs as average for males
Picks 3-5,000 in USA.

Import lines start at 5k -10k for parents that a show titled or parents fougth.

I accepted the fact the breed has subdivided into figthing show lines or working lines. And they are technically 2 different breeds now under one standard... CAO vs CAS.


The money is in the show dogs that they fight the same day.
Some go for 15k..

So try rescue first, dont import if needed cause those dogs wind up in rescue all the time, cant ship 200lb dog back to Russia.

i am going to post the rescued we got this year this month here.
Sad stories of starvation and neglect.

too much if you're not a good fit for one, just right if you can handle them and really need one.

Adoption is the way to go . Ovcharka rescue will take them back if the fit dont work out.

Considering the designer mutts are going for 1-3 k for a mutt.

I personally think many good breeders are charging too little for generations of OFA/Penn Hip - champion - working- temperament tested dogs.. that includes a lifetime of support and the dog can come back home.

Breeding dogs that fit the standard makes for a better working dog vs breeding a show dog and charging show dog prices ( higher)

When you compare what designer backyard breeders get for mutts that do nothing.
My brother got a Schnoodle for 500.00 and spent 2500 trying to save her from the many disease she had.

But we must remember people who get a CAS get a level of protection they are paying for. Yes they are companions and pets but they are protection dogs first be it human or 4 legged predators.

The one that saved its owner from a black bear may of thought his life was worth more than 1500 after the dog stopped the attack.

Again Good breeders are never a shortage of homes so RESCUE is the way to go.

We will have many CAO CAO and CO dogs in need of homes.....for 2009

They all look magnificent. They do make great blankets to keep you warm on a cool night.
