Anatolian Shepherd Dog / Komondor

We drove from Oklahoma to Texas in November, 2006, to adopt Colonel, a beautiful dog offered on PetFinder by the Anatolian Rescue Society. The volunteer relay teams from the rescue society were awesome. Thanks to them, we were able to pick up Colonel around Fort Worth. He was tired from traveling, but he was well cared for. (Thanks, Rescuers!) The Colonel had lived his life in a foster home on a ranch in South Texas and he wasn't a happy dog that first cold Oklahoma winter. He's adjusted now and rushes into the house each night to sleep in the living room, guarding our front door and enjoying the heat (or air conditioning!). At around 150 pounds, the Colonel's size is rather intimidating, but he is a very gentle dog. In fact, he's rather timid. In the past year, he's learned to enjoy having his ears rubbed and can be demanding. He wants his ear pets! He's our Outside Alpha dog. I'd characterize him as independent, determined, and shy. I like being able to leave the gate open and not have Colonel budge outside the yard. He loves his Forever Home.

Thanks, Sabrina. The Colonel weighs 159.6 lbs and he's only adorable as long as he stays off my toes! He is a well-behaved, shy dog, who is our alpha male in a group of six.
