Bulgarian Shepherd Dog

General Description

The Bulgarian Shepherd is a large and imposing breed, typically weighing over 100 pounds when fully grown. They have broad, deep chests, massive heads, and low-set tails. Their eyes are small and brown, and their V-shaped ears lay flat against their head.

Character and Temperament

Independent, intelligent, vigilant, proud, dominant and brave


If your Bulgarian Shepherd is not working as a livestock guardian, plan for at least 60 minutes of vigorous activity with your Bulgarian Shepherd every day to keep them from getting bored and becoming overweight.


The Bulgarian Shepherd—also referred to as Karakachan—originated in Bulgaria as guardians for mountain livestock. Although they can be reserved with strangers, they are devoted and loyal to their families.
