For Sale: Turkish Kangal Livestock Guardian Puppies

For Sale: Turkish Kangal Livestock Guardian Puppies

The parents of these pups are the top guardians on our cow calf and sheep operation. We run livestock in a provincial forest, with a heavy predator load in thick bush. We put a lot of trust in these dogs and they take their job very seriously.

The Mother is head of our pack and was guarding on pasture right up until she had the pups. The father is very protective of his stock and weighed 150 pounds at a year old. Both are very gentle, respectful and friendly around our family, including young children.

These pups will grow into large, athletic and very effective guardians of your livestock, farm and family. They are well socialized around adults and children; and are currently being raised with sheep in an outdoor working setting.

Taking deposits now, pups will be vaccinated and ready to go in January. Willing to assist with transport, text call or email with any questions.
