The Turkish Kangal is a handsome dog that has been highly prized for centuries by shepherds in its native Turkey, where it is the country"s national dog. Their impressive appearance and loyal nature have led to these working dogs becoming a popular companion and family dog in many countries around the world. The breed is not yet as well known in the UK as other breeds, but thanks to their proud appearance and reliable, friendly nature, they are gaining more and more followers. However, those wishing to share their home with a Kangal will need to register their interest with breeders, as very few puppies are bred in the UK each year.
