Possum Hollow 
 Turkish Guardian Dogs 



All of our Anatolian Shepherd Dogs are bred for their working ability.  They live year round in the pastures with the stock, moving from one pasture to the other and one set of stock to another as we need them.  They easily withstand temperatures from -10 F to 100 F. Puppies are born in a barn stall or whelping room and moved to the pasture at about 12 weeks old.  All of our Anatolians are registered with ASDCA (Anatolian Shepherd Dog Club of America) and/or AKC and are fully guaranteed against all genetic defects.
