Kira Akuma Junior, the Caucasian Ovcharka at 8 months old.

Kira Akuma Junior the Caucasian Shepherd at 8 months old—"Kira is a very typical Caucasian and is inherently weary of strangers, other animals and suspicious noises; she is an excellent guard dog and incredibly determined. As well, Kira is highly intelligent, energetic, loyal, loving and submissive with her loved ones."

"Caucasian Shepherds are not "easy" animals to own and anyone who wants one should do their research on the breed (like any potential dog owner should). These dogs require extensive training, early and ample socializing, a cool climate and most importantly a strong, confident, assertive owner that will exercise "tough love." They will challenge you many times and you must always come out the leader; this breed is my personal favorite and must be respected greatly as well as respect you."

Kira Akuma Junior the Caucasian Shepherd at 8 months old—"Kira is, however, a threat to anyone who stares at her too long and has been trained thoroughly (with a pinch collar, treats and consistent discipline). Her behavior is now controllable but she will always be a Caucasian at heart."

Kira Akuma Junior the Caucasian Shepherd at 8 months old— "I have watched the Dog Whisperer and have used several of Cesar's techniques very successfully! Being calm, assertive, confident and trustworthy have been my strongest tools."

Kira Akuma Junior the Caucasian Shepherd at 8 months old—"She is exactly her breed's standard in almost every way. She is a fantastic pet, but she would have been an absolute tyrant if she was not properly trained."

"Ozzy is 11 months old in this picture, she weighs around 80 lbs. (is underweight due to an illness that she is now recovered from) and has a red, brown, black and white toned coat. She is a wonderful addition to our Ovcharka family and gets along swimmingly with my other CO Kira. Oz is the sweetest CO to ever exist and only wants love and a good home to protect. She's basically a clown and is incredibly goofy all the time, she acts like a puppy basically. To furthermore accompany her goofiness she has adorable floppy ears that resemble pigtails when perked up. She loves bones more than any dog I have ever seen and is by far the best cuddle buddy. Overall, Oz is a sweet girl with a huge heart and light spirit that has brought me great joy and fulfillment. I love Oz and am happy to have her in my family."

"Draka is featured as the black-coated Ovcharka pup sleeping. He has been power-napping since he was a wee bear cub and nothing has changed! He is the kindest, gentlest Ovcharka male I have ever seen and is a gorgeous specimen. Although, as he is approaching his man-hood he is becoming more aware of others, more cautious and more wary toward strangers. He is as large as his father Osaka now, around 130-140 lbs. He is one in a million."
