    I actually saw them at the Brissy Ekka in August so they must be legal. Also must be breeders about....can't help you with that tho. Beautiful dogs.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    I did a couple of googles, leave out "Kurdish" and you get more hits. It doesn't come up on any government websites - so I guess it isn't a restricted breed - probably because there are not enough of them here for the councils to notice. They seem similar in "purpose" to the Maremma sheep flock guard dog, but look a bit more like a labrador x mastiff.

    When I included both "Kurdish" and "Kangal" it came up with a lot of nasty references so you'd want to not tell people what kind of dog it is in case it attracts attention from people who want a dog for bad things. I'm being deliberately vague because I don't want this post to come up on a search for "bad things".

    As far as I know they are not illegal, several came through the training centre I worked at for protection work. Very good dogs

    Beautiful breed, actually known as Turkish Kangal, however not for the city life, or life that limits them to backyard only. They need space and lots and lots and lots of it. As most of flock guarding dogs they have mind of their own so don't expect them to listen and obey perfectly. Also, I don't know the ones bread in Australia, but the true representative of the breed is sharp and really not for someone that has no experience or doesn't have knowledge that and similar types of dogs.

    I found they take very well to training, I do agree with your last comment though.
