From Caucasus worldwide: Caucasian Shepherd breed

Caucasian Shephard history

Known as Kavkazskaïa Ovtcharka, Caucasian Shepherd, Caucasian Ovcharka or Caucasian Mountain Dog, the Caucasian Shepherd is among the most renowned large dogs. As the name suggests, it comes from the Caucasus Mountains, from countries like Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, but has gained the reputation as Russian dog after the Second World War when Russian cynologists have taken steps to preserve the breed. This took place amid times when the uniqueness of the breed was endangered by violent deportations and unattended mixings.

These dogs remained known in history as a breed of guard dogs, used to defend households against wild animals, but also against uninvited guests and thieves. During the communist regime, they were used to defend the Soviet gulags and to patrol along the Berlin Wall.
