Anatolian Shepherd Dogs
At Salmon Creek Ranch, we got the dogs for the livestock - not the livestock for the dogs.
Our isolated ranch is surrounded by coyote, bobcat, raccoon, badger, fox and mountain lion. We needed a versatile, athletic and adaptable predator control system to protect birds to goats to us. We found the solution in the Anatolian Shepherd, an ancient breed from Turkey. These magnificent creatures have lived with their flocks under the most rigorous of conditions for thousands of years and are one of the oldest and most natural methods of predator control. We also believe it possible, with selective breeding and rigorous selection, to produce dogs that are healthy, sound, well-tempered and adhere to the Standard of the Breed: Anatolians who look like Anatolians and can do the job they were bred to do. Interestingly, while the neighboring ranches have all lost large numbers of hoofstock to predation, we've been most fortunate in that regard. Coincidence? We don't think so.....
