The Akbash, Turkey’s National dog, is a large dog breed which has a strong protective streak. The original use of the Akbash was to guard over livestock, which requires an alert, yet calm and collected dog. The white color of this breed is thought to help them blend in with the herd and also to help the shepherd to not mistake them for a predator, such as a wolf.
