Dog breed trivia #2 answer

mymarriedlife and Adrienne both came up with the correct answer, Šarplaninac.



The breed can also work cattle and serve as a guard dog; it was bred and used as a military dog under Josip Broz Tito. The Šarplaninac is spreading through North American ranches as a sheep herding dog and a livestock guardian. Since 1975, successful exports have been carried out to the United States and Canada to control coyotes, and this is where its future security rests. It is now gaining recognition as a hard-working, able flock guard in those countries.
