About Dogs – Caucasian Shepherd Dog Puppies

The mountainous region of the Caucasus, between the Black Sea and Caspian Sea, is home to one of the oldest living Molosser breeds, the Caucasian Shepherd or Mountain Dog (Georgian: კავკასიური ნაგაზი). Our Caucasian Shepherd dog, Bassa, had a litter of puppies 19 days ago. They spent the morning dozing in the warm sunshine.

The original purpose of this breed was to protect livestock from bears, wolves and thieves. Dogs similar to this superb guardian have protected livestock for at least 600 years. Even though its original use as a sheep guardian is declining it is still used by shepherds in Georgia and throughout the Caucasus Region.

We have written an eBook about life with our Caucasian Shepherd dog Bassa.

Called ‘Bassa’s World’, the book is a collection of anecdotes, photos and information about the life of a Caucasian Shepherd dog living in Tbilisi in Georgia.
