Filiz at 8 years of age.
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
