Thank you for your interest in our Anatolian Shepherds! We love these dogs and we think you will come to love them too!
At Amatus Acres we are committed to breeding the best possible Anatolians, with incredible temperaments and great working behavior. We breed for substance, excellent conformation, impeccable guarding instincts and a kind, loving, tolerant personality.
It all started in 2013, when we bought our farm and realized we would need some amazing predator control since coyotes, foxes, and possums are abundant in southern Indiana. After much research we decided on the Anatolian breed for it's loyalty to the herd, fearless protection, and ease of grooming :)
The Anatolian Shepherd is a breed that originates in the Anatolia region of Turkey. They were bred for centuries to be effective guardians of the flocks that are shepherded all over the mountains of Turkey. They needed to be tough enough to withstand the piercing cold of winter and the muggy heat of summer, strong enough to defend against bears and other large predators, yet gentle and loving to their herd. Over many years, the Anatolian became what it is today- the perfect predator repellant and a huge asset to any farm.
These dogs make incredible livestock guardians and in the right homes, can be wonderful home guardians as well. They are big but gentle, with the classic Anatolian independence and intelligence the breed is known for. We require puppy applications and will screen potential buyers. We look to place our puppies in only the best of homes.
A Livestock Guardian is an investment and a decision to add one to your farm should not be taken lightly. But, it very well may be the best decision you'll ever make! We will keep the pups as long as needed, growing and training them until the right home comes along. Please click on the the links with our Anatolians names to access their individual pages. Thank you again, we look forward to hearing from you! Feel free to contact us with any questions you have about our dogs, Anatolian Shepherds as a breed, or livestock guardians in general!
