Introducing the Çoban Köpeği family in Turkey:
Tyson, Mahdi, Balyoz
Below are my favourite photographs of the shepherd dogs in Turkey.
The spirit and physique I observed and admired in these dogs, influenced the Takas philosophy and import selection of BONNIE (IMP) & ASLAN (IMP) & TITANIUM (IMP)
Old male Kangal in Sivas, Kurtboğan Talaz bloodline. Relative of BONNIE (IMP)
TYSON King of Denizli. I first met Tyson (Karapınar) in 2010, this photo was taken in Spring 2014 and has gone viral on the internet. Tyson made an impression then and he does now, he really is the King of Denizli :) Tyson is the sire of my female ZARA in Turkey. Zara is the mother of BONNIE (IMP).

Old Yoruk. These photos was taken in Autumn 2010. I tried to find the old Yoruk the following Spring, but he had died during winter. This dog made an impression on my appreciation of native shepherd dogs, and is an influence on Takas breeding.
Tuzköy in Nevşehir. One of several Tuzköy that set an example for physical type which Takas follow today.
Including LADY (İmparator Boz x Lady Snr) - mother of ASLAN (IMP)
Agile Akbaş in Beypazarı mountains.
