Canaan Dog / pet-az


The Canaan Dog developed in the Middle East centuries ago as a herder and flock guardian. Although it is aloof with strangers, this medium-sized dog is loyal and loving with its human family. The Canaan’s double coat comprises a short, soft undercoat that changes its density in different climates, and a flat-lying, straight, harsh outer coat, with a ruff. Its two most common patterns are as follows: Predominantly white with or without additional patches of black and brown, and Solid-colored with or without white trim. The Canaan Dog behaves well with other household pets (including dogs) but tends to be scrappy towards strange dogs and people. A natural guardian, it may bark a lot and is protective of its human family. Additionally, the intelligent Canaan is an excellent herder, performing tasks obediently and always willing to please.
