The Akbash dog first came to work with Sir Echo Farms in 1999. A
most perfect specimen of the breed named Zen. The intelligence,
temperament, and beauty of the dog made him the perfect fit for our
farm. We added a female and have had a few litters since.

amazing livestock guardian by being a steward of the breed. We have
placed 9 puppies to date in Arizona, Oregon, Tennessee, Washington
State and California.

and we are hoping she will live up to our expectations here on the
We could not be living in this
wildlife corridor with the goats and horses if it was not for the
Akbash. For more information about the breed, please check out the
