Romanian Carpathian Shepherd dogs are a working dog native to the Carpathian Mountains, existing for hundreds of years. This mountain breed is large and wolf-like, retaining almost all of its original features. As a pack, they are popular throughout the mountains as fantastic herders and diligent watch dogs; praised for their bravery in tackling predators such as bears, wolves and lynx. They create an unconditional attachment to their herd and herdsman, making them a loyal companion and an increasingly popular family pet.
