Kars Kopegi

Kars Kopegi

卡爾斯,土耳其稱為卡爾斯科珀伊,是土耳其東部的一種牧羊犬品種。卡爾斯的名稱來自卡爾斯省的卡爾斯鎮,儘管它也分佈在土耳其東部的阿爾達罕、阿特溫、埃爾祖魯姆和伊德爾省。

卡爾斯犬與緊密相關的高加索牧羊犬非常相似,後者原產於高加索國家,位於土耳其東北邊境。它有著長而厚重的雙層毛髮(也有短毛的例子),可呈現多種顏色,包括黑色、白色、灰色、紅色、黃色和褐色。它們的胸部、頸部和前腿經常帶有白色斑點;比起土耳其中西部的牧羊犬品種稍小,被視為純種土耳其品種。卡爾斯犬被當地牧羊人用來保護他們的羊群免受該地區各種掠食者的襲擊,有一些故事描述數隻狗擊退甚至殺死了熊。

The Kars, known as the Kars Köpeği in Turkish, is a breed of livestock guardian dog from eastern Turkey. The Kars takes its name from the town of Kars in Kars Province, although it is also found throughout Ardahan, Artvin, Erzurum and Iğdır provinces in eastern Turkey.

The Kars closely resembles the closely related Caucasian Shepherd Dog which is native to the Caucasus countries over Turkey's north-eastern border. It has a long, heavy double coat (short-coated examples are known) that can be found in a number of colours including black, white, gray, red, yellow and brown, they frequently have white markings on their chest, necks and forelegs; slightly smaller than livestock guardian breeds from central and western Turkey and are considered a purebred turkish breed. The Kars is used by local shepherds to protect their flocks from predation from various predators found in the region, anecdotes exist of several dogs repulsing and even killing bears.
