  • The Anatolian Shepherd Dog Club of America was formed in 1970.
  • Anatolian Shepherds are also known as Goban Kopegi or Anatolian Karabash Dogs.
  • From ancient times Anatolian Shepherd Dogs served as shepherds' frontline defense from predators. Breeders created the dog of the same size and colors with the livestock they guarded in order to fit in among the flock undetected by predators. Anatolians had to guard their livestock at all times, in remote areas, so they were sure to make independent decisions.
  • Anatolians entered the US in the 1950s and are originally from the Anatolian Plateau in Turkey.
