Aksaray Malaklisi Puppy

Aksaray Malaklisi Puppy, The Aksaray Malaklisi is a Turkish breed of large livestock guardian dog, from the Aksaray Province in Central Anatolia.[1][2][3]


The Aksaray Malaklısı originates in, and is named for, the Aksaray Province in Central Anatolia. It is believed to descend from a common ancestor with the Kangal, but has been selectively bred for larger size and greater weight.[citation needed] Genetic analysis has shown it to be distinct breed other Turkish livestock guardian dog breeds, including the Kangal, Akbash and Kars.[3]

The “malakli” part of the breed name is said to be due to their pendulous jowls.[2][3]


Aksaray Malaklisi Puppy, The Aksaray Malaklısı usually stands between 73 and 78 centimetres (29 and 31 in) at the withers, with a body length of some 79 and 83 centimetres (31 and 33 in).[1] It is typically grey in colour with a black mask; the coat is short. The head and ears are large, the jowls are pendulous, and the tail is straight.[1][2][3] The dogs only obey commands from the master, and can be aggressive with other people. They typically do not tolerate working with other dogs of the same sex. Their lifespan is 13-15 years.[3]


The Aksaray Malaklısı is used in its homeland to protect flocks of sheep from predators, especially wolves. A pair of Aksaray Malaklısı, always a male and a female, can protect some 700-800 sheep.[3]
