Local dog breeders win with Moose

Sandra King said she first got interested in large dogs after a series of burglaries at her Chiefland home back in the mid 1980’s. She said she was working at a veterinary clinic at the time, and a co-worker, after hearing about the break-ins, said, “You need an Anatolian.”
Anatolians, properly referred to as Anatolian shepherd dogs, are a relatively large breed of dog from Turkey that are prized for their loyalty, courage and ability to intimidate, King said in an interview on the front porch of her business partner Linda Curran’s home in High Springs last week.
“That’s what they were developed for. They were developed over centuries to protect…Basically, whatever they’re raised with they bond to and will protect with their lives.”
King got her first Anatolian, a pooch she named Murgatroid, in 1987.  And she’s been in love with the 6,000-year-old breed ever since.
“These guys, they’re amazing.  They really get into your blood.  Sometimes it feels like they’re talking to you.”
