Caucasian Mountain german shepherd

Has anyone ever seen a dog like this? To me it looks like a mixed breed that someone cut half of the dogs ears off..

Re: Caucasian Mountain german shepherd

Oh my. He looks very familiar. Shepherd and something. St Bernard or something. In the picture with the giant lego on the ground he looks SO FAMILIAR. I cannot picture the dog with the face that looks like that right now.

But his ears!! Oh my his poor ears!

I like the last picture of him. He has that head back GSD look to him there. With all that stuff in the yard, they are lucky he has only chewed up his Dogloo.

Poor thing.

Re: Caucasian Mountain german shepherd

Looks like he is either a Central Asian Ovtcharka or a Caucasian Ovtcharka. Amazing dogs.

Re: Caucasian Mountain german shepherd

So it sounds like it's a Caucasian x GSD

"Ovtcharka" means sheepdog/shepherd.

Re: Caucasian Mountain german shepherd

Posting got flagged, I really wanted to see a CO/GSD mix. It is common for them to have their ears cropped (I think it might even be considered "amputated" as they cut to the base of the head). I think they do it to prevent damage (like they would dock a tail) as these dogs are meant to ward off (and fight if needed) predators.
