TURKISH SHEPHERD DOGS: Stories from Turkey #1
HOW TURKS TAKE CARE OF THEIR DOGS!
Part 1 of 2
Part 1 of 2
This two-part story features dogs owned by one family in the Sivas region in eastern Turkey. The name of their town is Kargakalesi, meaning crow castle.
The dog shown in the first 4 pictures and the dog in the 5th picture are being treated for food poisoning.
The source of the poisoning is unknown. The family treated one dog in the house and the other outside the home.
The little girl helping her uncle care for his dogs is 6 years old. Although her uncle is not a vet, he has learned well how to care for his dogs.
Here is a video showing what the terrain is like in the Sivas region: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7V0pdLFQil4. This video was taken a year or two ago and shows some other Turkish Shepherd Dogs unrelated to the ones in the blog photos.
Special thanks to the owner in Turkey for permission to use his photos and story on my blog.

The Male Pups 7 Weeks Old
Dark fawn male with right white foot was very much at ease being free to move about with the other dogs and goats outside the puppy pen. His demeanor today was laid back yet willing to interact and say hi to the goats, including this one that was shaking her head at him. He weighed in at 19 lbs 0 oz, the second heaviest of the puppies.
