It is believed that Asian Shepherd Dogs, also known as Alabay, Alabai, Turkmen Wolf-Hound, are the ancestors of the oldest breed known today. They are extremely noble and proud looking dogs that have proven to be loyal, brave and devoted companions throughout the ages. They are often known as Central Asian Ovcharka and today these handsome, large dogs are gaining popularity all over the world, including here in the UK, although they are not currently recognised as a breed by the Kennel Club (June 2016).
