Filiz and her pups...April, 2006. Germany
Filiz was bred in Kangal Turkey by Turhan Kangal and owned by Achmet Gokay of Kangal a famous breeder and shepherd. The sire and dam of Filiz were bred by Turan Kangal in Kangal Turkey. Although Filiz had quite a hard life working sheep for 5 years before coming to Germany, she is HD free with very good hips as of 2006 at 8 years of age.
This is Filiz's last litter of pups. We are blessed to have such nice pups from parents with excellent/proven working ability and temperament. These genetics are worth every effort to preserve.
She is a Purebred Kangal
