(Kangal Dog and Lamb Left) Kangal dogs are amazingly gentle with family members-big and small. However, they are ready in a moment to protect what is theirs, no matter what the threat. Combined with their devotion to their owners, their protective nature, and their inherent bravery, this makes the Kangal Dog an exceptional family and farm guardian.

(Young puppies right) Yet although the Kangal can be such a ruthless warrior when circumstance demands, it has a calm and docile disposition and is never aggressive towards people. The Kangalís short coat ranges from off-white through sandy, grey and brown tones. Depending on whether the black patches around the mouth and ears are less or more extensive, the Kangal is known as akbas (white-head) or karabas (black-head). Like other shepherd dogs, the Kangal has a highly developed sense of smell. It can recognise each one of a herd of 300 sheep, so there is no chance of any animals going astary or any strange animals mingling with the herd. The intelligence of the Kangal is legendary. One Kangal breeder explained that in Sivas local people believe the dogs recognise 200-250 words, and that even allowing for an element of hearsay, this is not far short of the truth. He says that the dogs are capable of performing a wide range of complex tasks, and that they can detect many emontions and read the thoughts of their owners from the tone of voice or facial expression.
