Euro Puppy Welcomes A Wonderful New Dog Breed!

November 5, 2007 by ann

The Romanian Mioritic Shepherd Dog:

Nestled within the mysterious mountains of Transylvania and Romania, a rare and wonderful creature has been the companion of proud Romanians for hundreds of years! This rather unusual and generally-unheard of dog is new to both the world and to Euro Puppy! The Romanian Mioritic Shepherd Dog is a breed of large sheep dogs that originates from the Carpathian Mountains of Romania. Celtic and Tartaric tribes that came to the East brought this cool canine with them and it found a home amongst the Shepherds that even today live in the Transylvanian Mountains. This massive dog – which was officially recognized by the FCI in 2005 - is covered in thick, fluffy white or grayish fur. The eyes are slightly oval and are of a beautiful amber hue that creates a stunning contrast to the pale fur. They look like huge teddy bears!
