History

Ceramic figures from Japan that show representations of dogs have been preserved since ancient times, that look like this Japanese breed.

The original field of application of these dogs was hunting, more precisely hunting in the prefecture of Kochi on isla de Shikoku – that is why the race is sometimes called “perro Kochi“. However, name Tosa-Inu, which is used in part in Japan, it's misleading, because under the name “Tosa” there is also another japanese race. In addition, three varieties of Shikoku, that were named according to the respective region in which they live: pity, Hongawa and Hata. How the Hongawa region was the most difficult to access in the past, This variety is considered to be the least modified by other influences and the closest to the ideal of Shikoku. Today, the Shikoku It is considered the national dog of Japan along with the Akita.

    Eslovaquia FCI 142 - Sheepdogs.

    Slovak Cuvac

    The Slovak Cuvac is a good watchdog, faithful and very brave, always ready to fight intruders, even if it's bears or wolves.

    Content

    History

    The white mountain dog breed group is derived from arctic-type wolves, whose survivors remained from the pre-glacial era in the mountainous areas of Europe, as far as freezing limits reached. These areas are the mountainous slopes of the North Caucasus, the balkans, especially the Rodope mountains, the Carpathians, especially the Tatra, the slopes to the north of Abruzzo and finally the Pyrenees. In these cold and humid regions the mountain dog was introduced, also accompanied by ancient flora and fauna, which were still discovered by the Swedish researcher Wahlenberg in Scandinavia.. We can find a similar relationship with Nordic pets, for example, in Tatra regions in the Carpathians where the Huzul horse has as its predecessor the Gudbrandstal horse; in the same way, the Slovak Cuvac has an analogy with the pomeranian sheepdog. Slovak alpine cowboy activity has a very old tradition.

    The Slovak Cuvac along with the mountain sheep, the Huzul horse and the typical mountain inhabitants constitute the basic economic conditions to take advantage of the pastures in cattle breeding. The Slovak mountains mostly belonged to the free people who were not subject to the servitudes of the Middle Ages; the people protected the country's borders and their task was only to make sheep cheeses. His institution was called ″ Wallach Alliance ″ (Vallasky belt), based in Kaschau until the abolition of easements. The members of this military and pastoral group carried out their services in the pastures, always accompanied by the typical surveillance dog. Tatra that also appear in many images. The Slovak Cuvac has shown his skills as a good caregiver, guardian and companion, as well as guide the flocks of sheep, to the care of the cattle and also in the pastures of turkeys and other domestic animals, as well as guarding various objects. Also the clients of the thermal stations who visited the alpine cowboys and who came to buy cheeses and other products, they looked with pleasure at these puppies covered in dense hair and bought them, taking this breed to lower places where it was often considered a luxury breed for its unique appearance.

    In the Polish Tatra region, where there is a similar breed of mountain dog called goral dog, exceptionally strong specimens were commonly called "Liptauer", indicating its Slovak origin. In this way, It is also limited from the topographical point of view the region of the breeding of the Slovak Cuvac white. The genealogical record of the Slovak Cuvac was started in Czechoslovakia more than 30 years by Professor Anton Hruza of the Veterinary Faculty of Brünn. The initial material came from the Liptovska Luzna region, kokava, Vychodna from Tatrach and the surrounding area of ​​Rachovo in the Carpathians. The first hatchery was named ″ Ze zlaté studny ″ (from the golden well) and it was founded in Svitavy u Brna.

    The calf in the Carpathians was called ″ z Hoverly ″ (the Hoverla). Since then, the Breeders Club of Slovak Cuvac is based in Bratislava where exact registrations are made and exhibitions are organized, judgments and powers that extend throughout the country. Other original bloodlines come from the Liptovské Hole regions, Velky Choc, buried, Martin, Jedlova and Jeseniky. The lines that have been extended further are Topas, career, Simba, Hrdos, Ibro, Cuvo, Ass, Dinar, Samko, Bojar, Olaf and others. Genetically the Slovak Cuvac can be characterized as a leuzistic mountain dog with a black muzzle, and to a lesser extent as a flavistico white dog with brown snout and lighter eyes. From the combination of the mentioned genetic types, in which the first is dominant, some variations in color tonality originate, pigmentation of the eyes, of the eyelids, of the muzzle, lips and mucosa.

    Holanda FCI 311 - Sheepdogs.

    Saarloos wolfdog

    The Dutch Society of Saarloos wolfdog, is the only organism that can supply puppies.

    Content

    History

    The Sr. Leendert Saarloos (1884-1969) loved nature and also dogs. He realized that the dogs had become too humanized and he intended, as a lover of the German Shepherd, of recovering the natural qualities of this breed to produce a better working dog. For this reason he crossed a male German Shepherd, Gerard van der Fransenum, a dog of the classic Prussian style, with Flowers, a female wolf that originated from the Siberian branch of the European type (1932). Breeding based on the father gave him a basic population of animals with a quarter of wolf blood. During the course of the next experimental phase with strict selection, a new race, the ″ European Wolf Dog ″ had evolved. Select animals of this breed provided good service as guide dogs, and at the beginning they were considered suitable for this task.

    Due to the increase in the proportion of wolf blood, usable skill, inherited from the original predecessor, Gerard, gradually lost and it became obvious that the breed was not suitable for use as a working or guide dog. Leendert Saarloos Legacy, not a working dog, but a dog with attributes more attached to nature, was recognized as a breed in 1975. At that time, the breed was named ″Saarloos Wolfdog″ In honor of its founder: Honor for whom honor deserves.

    Physical characteristics

    • Size: males, of 65 a 75 cm.; females of 60 a 70 cm..

    Character and skills

    Strongly hierarchical, he is very close to his owner and distrusts strangers. It is a dog to enjoy and study (better as a couple or in a group) especially by fans of ethology, but it is not recommended to use it for guard and defense, because he tends to run away from man. Your reservation and your way of avoiding unknown situations, just like a wolf, are typical characteristics of the Saarloos Wolfdog.
