Anna is a 4-month-old female Asian Shepherd who is doing well in her foster home but still needs a furever home. She is great with other dogs, cats and children.
The Central Asian Shepherd Dog is a protective dog who bonds first to its human caretaker and next with its perceived possessions. Bred to solve problems, it is independent minded, strong, brave and responsible. It is a large but agile dog, sometimes described as a cat in dog’s clothing.
With its strong guarding and territorial instincts, it is not a breed for the novice owner.
Sensitive and smart, the Central Asian Shepherd responds best to someone who can inspire loyalty while also providing strong leadership. Heavy-handed training will backfire with this breed but respectful, thoughtful training will yield an undyingly devoted companion.
