That's crazy! I thought I knew way too much about obscure breeds, but that one got me. I feel better knowing I was close! I hope to have a CO or Central Asian one day. I've met 2 Centrals and they were magnificent dogs. The Tibetan Mastiff and Anatolian we had at daycare were cool, too, but something about the Ovcharkas call to me (though I will have constantly remember they're NOT a shepherd!).
OH WOW! What an interesting history to the breed! Not to mention the breed itself.
I just found this really cool site. Thanks so much for posting about this guy. Hope to see lots more of him in the future. http://www.gampr.org/characteristics.html
The physical standard for the Armenian Gampr has not yet been translated into the english language. For the purpose of preserving the breed, AGCA
is developing a points system, where each dog is scored on various attributes. We are opposed to breeding dogs per a bench standard, as the inflated
price of dogs who conform to certain physical characteristics defined by human desire for a good-looking specimen has reduced the usefulness of
many other breeds of dog. The gampr is uniquely shaped by nature and necessity, not fashion or vanity or pocketbooks, and should remain so.

So my GSD is 2YO, had her since she was 5 months old, the entire time I've had her she has never been a barker, to the point where i go months without hearing a single bark. The most she does is whine when she wants togo outside or hears my neighbor who she loves. The rare times she does let out...
