CH Doga Farm's Lokum (Turkish Delight)

She is a Purebred Sivas Kangal Kopegi
Imported from Turkey - Onur Kanli, Breeder
"I had Lokum with goats for a couple of months and had to move them so that I could introduce the new baby lambs I had brought home to my farm.
As I began to move the goats to make room for the sheep, Lokum became very distressed.
I kept telling her, ""It's ok Lokum, just give me a minute to move out the goats and then I'll put new babies in with you..."
She didn't care what I was saying...all she knew was that I was taking her animals away and it was very upsetting to her.
When we finally got the goats moved to their new pasture, I went and got one of the new Babydoll lambs I had just picked up in Kentucky.  As soon as I put that first lamb in Lokum's pasture, she calmed down and all was right again in her world.
Lokum loves her animals with a passion.  It doesn't matter if it's goats or sheep or cattle.  As long as she has a job to do she's a happy and content girl.  Guarding livestock is something she's done all her life.  It's in her blood and it's been her destiny since she was born.
I never comprehended how incredibly bonded she was with these animals until this day.  I trust this dog with anything, whether it be newborn human baby or animal.  She's one of a kind and she has blessed so many of us with her heritage found in her puppies that fill our hearts and our homes.

I absolutely love this photo of Lokum with her son, Baghatur.  They're in seperate pastures but to see them side by side just warms my heart.
