Caucasian Shepherd Dog – Ovcharka Mountain Dog


The Caucasian Shepherd Dog also known as the Caucasian Ovcharka or Caucasian Mountain Dog, is a strongly boned, muscular, and even-tempered molosser. Molosser is a category of solidly built, large dog breeds that all descend from the same common ancestor. The name derives from Molossia, an area of ancient Epirus, where the large shepherd dog was known as a Molossus. Exercise and play time are a crucial part of the Caucasian Shepherd Dog’s life to help prevent obesity. Outdoor activities such as hiking, chasing balls and retrieving flying discs can be a good outlet of releasing energy. [Source: Wikipedia]
