The Anatolian Shepherd Dog (Turkish: Anadolu çoban köpeği) is a breed of dog that originated in Turkey, formerly Anatolia in ancient Greek; meaning (East). The dog is rugged, large, and very strong, with good sight and hearing that allow it to protect livestock. With its high speed and agility, it is able to run down a predator with great efficiency. Historically, it has been treated as a separate breed from the Kangal Shepherd Dog by many canine registries, but is now generally treated as part of the same breed population.
