Ch Turkmen Kaptan’s Hanim
Hanim came to Latte Da in 2007.
Faithful, loyal and bit of a trouble maker !...are just a few words to describe this unusual breed, the Kangal. Most importantly, she is fiercely protective of her charges. She lives not only WITH the goats, but loves to be in the middle of everything they do and is truly part of the herd. She is extremely unhappy if she is separated from them & will fuss until she can return to where she knows she ‘belongs’.
Hanim received her UKC Championship in 2008 !
Chuck joined the Latte Da family in 2012. This happy guy was a rescue Great Pyrenees. He was clearly a working dog looking for a job to do, and he does his job VERY WELL.
CH'PR'Patteran Dama's Abla
Abla is an Akbash (another Turkish breed). Like Hanim, she is fiercely loyal and happy to be with her goats. She is especially gentle and sensitive with the young 'girls' who may be a little tentative about a "big white dog". Abla became a UKC champion in 2010. She was BEST IN SHOW at the 2013 Akbash National Specialty and was #2 in the Akbash Top Ten breed standings.
