Since we were going to raise Nubians we thought it best to aquire an LGD. LGD is a livestock guardian dog that stays with the herd (goats, sheep, etc) and works as their protector against predators and strays. I had my heart set on an Anatolian but we ended up getting a local pup from working Pyrenese/Akbash parents. LGD pups are raised with the herd, not with their human family. This little guy settled right in and the girls accepted him with no problems. We named him Bundash , name that came from my Slovak heritage. My great grandparents used to have Kuvatz dogs and each one was named Bundash.
