Yes, the dogs that are bred outside of Turkey are from stock that was exported before the restrictions were put in place.
There are several breeders in the UK, Europe, Canada and the USA but I understand that they are beginning to struggle to find fresh Kangal stock to breed their dogs with.
The Kangals in Turkey are believed to be one of purest breeds in the world and Sivas University has a big programme devoted to mapping the DNA of Kangals to ensure that the line continues.
Yes, that's our Molly. 2 years old and about 50 kilos / 8 stone.
The breeding programme in Turkey is run by Sivas University as I mentioned previously. They've got a whole faculty dedicated to the Kangal and it's history, DNA, future breeding etc.
The Turkish Kennel Club, formed in 2001, approved a detailed breed standard for the Kangal Dog, which was published in Turkey at the Second International Kangal Dog Symposium in July 2005
Take a look at Margaret Mellor's website. She breeds them in the UK and is well respected in Turkey's Kangal circles.
