Description

Pakistani Shepherd Dogs are very strong and muscular dogs. They have a rounded forehead and dark, almond-shaped eyes. Their lips are black and their nose is mostly black. Their feet have very hard soles. Adult Pakistani Shepherd Dogs have erect ears. The coat of the Pakistani Shepherd Dog is usually black and tan, but can be gold, and some can come in white, which is rare but does occur. The colors vary from region to region.

Temperament

The Pakistani Shepherd Dog is a herding breed. They are very keen and love to herd animals, sometimes even little kids and their owners. They are dedicated to their work, courageous, fearless and alert. Very protective of their property, owners and sheep, they can be trained easily because they love to learn new things. Pakistani Shepherd Dogs are very loyal toward their work and handler, loving their family. They obey their owner’s every command. The Pakistani Shepherd Dog has a loving nature and is very playful with children, enjoying playing games. This breed is bred to work, and can't sit idle all the time. Being able to work is their passion. They should be socialized from an early age and training should start as a puppy. Bhayri Kuttas should not be left alone with other small non-canine pets. This is a very obedient and loyal breed that is not aggressive, but will protect its owner to the death should the need arise. This breed needs owners who are naturally authoritative over the dog in a calm, but firm, confident and consistent way.

Height, Weight

Height: Males 24 - 25 inches (61 - 64 cm) Females 20 - 24 inches (50 - 61cm)
Weight: 77 - 99 pounds (35 - 45 kg)

Health Problems

Prone to flea allergies.

Living Conditions

This high energy, relentless breed keeps on working in desert temperatures of 104° F (40° C) and sometimes higher..

Exercise

The Pakistani Shepherd Dog loves strenuous activity, preferably combined with training of some kind, for these dogs are very intelligent and crave a good challenge. When not being worked they need to be taken on a daily, brisk, long walk, jog or run alongside you when you bicycle. While out on the walk the dog must be made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as in a dog's mind the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human. Most shepherds love to play ball or Frisbee. This breed does best with a job to do. Without enough exercise, mental and physical, it will become bored and destructive, which will affect its good temperament.

Life Expectancy

About 8-10 years.

Grooming

This breed sheds bits of hair constantly and is a seasonally heavy shedder. If it is in inside dog, it should be brushed daily or you will have hair all over your home. Bathe only when necessary; over bathing can cause skin irritation from oil depletion. Check ears and trim claws regularly.

Origin

The Pakistani Shepherd Dog is a breed from Pakistan that has been used for herding and protection for centuries. The word “Bhagyari” comes from the root word of the Punjabi language "Bhagyaar," which means "wolf." "Kutta" means "dog." This breed is mostly found in the province of Punjab and Sindh in Pakistan. There are different theories on the origin of the Bhagayari Kutta. According to the most popular theory, the Pakistani Shepherd Dog originated between a wolf and a domestic dog of some type, hence the name Pakistani Shepherd Dog (meaning “wolf dog”). If you have ever seen an Asian (Pakistani) Wolf, you will see that the Pakistani Shepherd Dog really resembles that type of wolf.
