Jack's has outgrown his collar. He was on the last notch of a
28" collar and it was tight. The largest size at the  local
Tractor Supply an J&N Feed Store was 28". To get a collar to
fit I had to go to the Western Store and buy him a 32"
women's cowboy belt - Now he is all "fixed Up". Jack is
165 lbs and stands to my belt line (I am 6'2"). Very
Impressive Canine that is all business on the ranch.
Lady giving "Big Jack" a look
wondering why he's wearing a
women's belt!
The Highest Reward For A Persons
Toil Is Not What He Gets For It, But
What He Becomes By It.
A REAL "SWEETHEART" - LADY

COLD weather. Accepted by the AKC in the '90's (6000

Herds from Wolves and Bear. Average bite 880 ft/lbs,

They can outrun the shepherd and their growl
sounds like a bear-one though dog that gives 120%.

   PERSONAL AND PROPERTY PROTECTION
WHEN A BOND IS ESTABLISHED BETWEEN YOU
OR YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR SHEPHERDS THEY
HAVE YOUR BACK. I HAVE PERSONALLY
WITNESSED THIS ON MANY OCCASIONS OVER THE
YEARS LIVING ON THE BRAZOS RIVER
SURROUNDED BY HUNDREDS OF ACRES OF
UNINHABITED RANCH LAND WITH VARIED TERRAIN.
I HAVE SEEN THE SHEPHERDS ACT AS A UNIFIED
ONE TO WARD OFF OR DISPATCH A THREAT.  THEY
HAVE ON NUMEROUS TIMES ALERTED ME TO
RATTLESNAKES AND COPPERHEADS. DROVE OFF
WILD BOAR AND OTHER WILD ANIMALS AND EVEN
DIVERTED A CHARGING RANGE BULL THAT I KNOW
I WOULD NOT BE WRITING THIS WITHOUT THEM. I
ALWAYS TAKE THEM WHEN WORKING IN THE FIELD
OR DAILY CHORES. ONCE YOU ARE ATTUNE WITH
THEM
, VERBAL COMMUNICATION IS MINIMAL.
WHEN HAVING LUNCH UNDER ONE OF THE
LARGE OAK TREES THEY WILL LIE DOWN IN 360
DEGREES AROUND ME AND KEEP WATCH. THE
ANATOLIAN  WILL LAY DOWN ABOUT 50 YARDS
AWAY ON THE EDGE OF TALL GRASS WATCHING-IT
IS THEIR BREEDING, NATURE AND NATURAL
INSTINCT. I DID NOT TRAIN THEM FOR THIS. IF YOU
HAVE PROPERTY, AT LEAST TWO SHEPHERDS IS
THE WAY TO GO. THEY WILL BOND WITH YOU BEING
THE PACK LEADER. THEY WILL BE MORE ACTIVE
BOTH MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY
AND KEEP
COMPANY WITH EACH OTHER WHEN YOU ARE
GONE
