Çapar of Çardak (pronounced ChoppAR of CHARdock) is a rare find in Turkey, due to his unique, dark, brindle coat coloring! Çapar means brindle. He just turned 4 years old (February 2010).
Çapar has cropped ears, like many shepherd dogs in Turkey.

Çapar was a working sheep flock guardian in Turkey near the old village of Çardak, a Turkish word meaning arbor or summerhouse. (The new village name is Altinkaya, meaning gold stone, located in central Turkey southeast of Tuz Golu, Turkey's Salt Lake.) Çapar's mother was fawn with a black mask, and his father was brindle from a nearby yayla.

One day, Çapar and his working partner, a female flock guardian were with the sheep in Turkey when a wolf invaded their territory, probably to drink at the sheep's water source. The shepherd heard a commotion and went to investigate. When he arrived at the scene, he found that Çapar and his partner had protected the flock and the wolf was dead. Çapar is very loyal to his flock. In fact, he will escape to be with his flock if not chained with a harness, as his neck is thick and he can slip out of regular collars!

This sweet and mellow boy is a sensitive soul with expressive eyes which flash affection when given TLC. He is gentle with his people and his flock. You can play with his food while he's eating and he wags his tail. He likes tummy rubs, and will even run up to you and pounce into a playbow near your feet but not bump you in any way. When startled awake, he just looks to locate the sound. This is not a dog that assumes bad things will happen. He seems extremely well socialized and shows excellent manners, such as waiting to eat until given permission. When learning the hotwire, he yelped and ran away, but did not show any aggression toward animals that were right next to him. The goats and wee goat kids are accepted without question as a completely natural and normal part of his environment. What an awesome boy!

Çapar will spend his time guarding the herd of Oberhasli does and kids, and sometimes the herd of Boer does and kids. And of course, we are looking forward with great anticipation to his offspring! We are also enjoying his humorous antics and his displays of intelligence!
