Kangal Dogs International
An independent association of artisans, scholars and most of all dog lovers devoted to the Turkish Kangal Dog. We hope to make a difference using our time and talents to support projects that sustain, study, and seek to preserve this breed. This is not a formal organization, it is a series of personal projects made out of love for the Kangal.
It is our intent to help document, conserve and interpret the visual and written heritage of the Kangal Dog in order to offer a glimpse into it's present situation both in its homeland and abroad.
