    Who would have thought I would have ever met a Kangal dog here in Mississippi? Her name was Bella, and she was really awesome. At first, I thought she was a huge yellow lab with a curly tail, then what I asked what she was, she told me a Kangal. I never thought I would meet one of those guys! She was really sweet and very obediant.

    I'm wondering if it was a pure Kangal or possibly an Anatolian like my Max. There aren't many pure Kangals here in the US as you can't import them from Turkey.

    Here is a pic of my Max who is an Anatolian (some say he resembles an Akbash):
