Akbash is quite literally an ancient breed. There history can be followed back to the primary civilizations around the Fertile Crescent; a district in Western Asia that presently covers regions of Turkey, Iran, and Iraq. First and foremost they utilized the canines as defenders of homestands and as hunters yet later when close to the rural creation the occupants of the domain began to tame creatures and make domesticated animals groups also, the canines were developed to satisfy animals guarding and shedding obligations. This canine; the Turkish Akbash was among the most punctual varieties to have been developed. In a similar period other white guarding canines were created around the Mediterranean Basin too, like the Great Pyrenees of France and Spain, the Kuvasz of Hungary, and the Maremma canines found in Italy's Maremma Mountains, however the Turkish one was interesting. The Akbash is an exceptional blend of Sighthound and Mollosser (Mastiff) qualities. Its figure and force came from the Mastiff and the Sighthound gave it the long legs, speed, and agility.
