Central Asian Shepherd
This dog is one of the oldest dog breeds in the world with history spanning back some 5000 years.
The interesting thing is that it was not a dog bred by man, but instead that originated as a result of the climate and circumstances.
It is a large and powerfully built dog that has big bold and muscular legs and has a broad and powerful back.
It has a large head and a short, powerful neck, and when full grown can weigh up to 180 pounds.
Thousands of years ago when this dog first formed its bonds with humans, they were used for herding and even dog fighting.
In ancient times, the shepherds of these Central Asian regions would gather up on occasion and fight their most prized dogs to find out which one was the strongest.
