Weight: This breed normally weighs around 40 to 60 kilograms (90 – 130 pounds).

Height: The Akbashr is a large dog. It stands at about 28 to 30 inches (70 – 80 cm) at the shoulder.

Color/s: This breed of dog presents itself in a coat of solid white color which is rather smooth and is doubly coated. But sometimes there could be flakes of biscuit coloring or shades of gray around its ears.

Overview: The Akbashr is the native of Turkey more so in the western province. It gets its name from the region of Akbas. It was primarily bred to guard livestock but also took on the role of working as a sheep dog. It is extremely devoted to its owners as well as the animals that it is required to guard. They are an intelligent and courageous breed of dog thus making them natural guard dogs.

Character: The Akbashr displays a calm and well balanced character. It is an intelligent dog and can think on its own under different trying conditions. It displays a submissive character with domestic or farm animals, but takes on an aggressive role while confronting threats. While working, its independent character comes to the fore as it enjoys the prospect of working with its master as a partner rather than a subordinate. Although it is it is an outdoor dog, it loves to spend time indoors with its family.

Temperament: This breed of dog is composed and aware of its environment. It does not display shyness nor aggressiveness. It has strong maternal instincts which make it perfect for looking after newly born animals on the farm. But the calmness of this dog should not be mistaken for timidity. It is extremely watchful and protective over its charge. This inherent trait makes this breed rather suspicious of strangers in the house or other dogs/pets in the house.

Care: The Akbashr should be brushed at least once in a week. This will not only help remove any loose dirt that may be caught in it but also help in the process of shedding. Besides bathing it on rare occasions, the nails should be clipped and the teeth brushed regularly with veterinarian approved toothpaste.

Coat: The coat of the Akbashr is all weather white colored. The hair is a combination of short to medium length. It forms a double covering over the body. Although coarse in texture, the coat of the Akbashr does not get matted and also does not give off too much dog odor.

Training: To train an Akbashr, the whole schedule must start early. This will help in instilling obedience in the dog. Left too late, the independent nature inherent of the breed takes over and then things become unmanageable. Teaching it socialize early will get rid of its suspicious nature and it will become more acceptable to others, both humans and animals.

Activity: Though the Akbashr displays a low level of activity, but this does not take away the fact that it is an exceptionally athletic dog. Daily long walks and lots of open space to run around are absolutely essential for it.

Life Span: The longevity of this breed of dog is between 10 to 11 years.

Health Concerns: Generally the Akbashr breed is healthy, strong and resilient. Health problems such as OCD and hip dysplasia are known to have manifested in some and some may also develop hereditary complications.

Ideal Living Quarters: This breed is suited for apartment life. A house with a large enough yard with a fence around it will be best for the Akbashr to run around and release energy and at the same time exercise. Indoors it is quiet and does not create any mess.
