ALL BIG DOG BREEDS 📸 theawesomedaily.com
A massive creature able to meet a human face to face when standing on their hind legs, the Caucasian Shepherd dog is not a companion for the faint of heart. With a sturdy build and ferocious sense of loyalty, dogs of this breed are inherently assertive and strong willed. They have dense double-coats that are very weather resistant and help to protect the Caucasian Shepherd from the harsh elements of their homeland, the plains and mountains of the Caucasus region. Dogs with ancestors from the plains of Caucasia tend to have shorter coats and a taller, lighter build than their robust, muscular counterparts from the mountainous areas. The fur around the ears, tail and between the toes feathers out to further help protect the dog from moisture. Coats range in color from tan, white, fawn, and can also be a combination of colors as seen in brindle and pied coats. They can also display facial mask patterns, typically in black. Caucasian Shepherds are usually between 25-30 inches tall and will weigh between 100-180 lbs. on average, with some weighing in over 200 lbs. With proper love and care, these dogs usually will live to be between 10-12 years old.
