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!).

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

many other breeds of dog. The gampr is uniquely shaped by nature and necessity, not fashion or vanity or pocketbooks, and should remain so.

My wife and I are expecting early next year and our male dog Grendel has gotten obsessed with my wife. Sticks to her like glue.
We typically commute together so most days we obviously get home at the same time, and he’s been barreling out of the crate like it’s on fire to find her. He’ll knock...
