Кавказская овчарка

Кавказская овчарка (Caucasian Ovcharka)
The Caucasian Shepherd or Caucasian Ovcharka is one of the most brutal Russian dog breeds (maybe not the puppy featured above). It is a large, even-tempered dog with powerful and muscular body, bear-look face, deeply set oval dark eyes, round-shaped cropped ears and low carried long tail. It has a thick and water resistant double coat in shades of gray, brindle, yellow, rust, red or white. The coat may be longer or shorter depending on the region the dog comes from.

The strength and dedication of this dog has made it a popular working, police and guard dog throughout Europe and the former Soviet Union states. They call it Caucasian Shepherd in Europe and Caucasian Mountain Dog in America. In the West it is also known as the Russian Bear Dog. In Russia its usual name is Caucasian Ovcharka which means means sheepdog in Russian.The Caucasian Ovcharka was used for centuries to guard flocks, kill wolves, hunt bears and protect properties against trespassers and thieves.
