A Proven Working Anatolian with Superior Working Ability

Agape Fayda was the first Anatolian Shepherd at the Gerlach Ranch. Dog packs had been killing their sheep and chickens and she was purchased as a working guardian. Time and again she proved herself to be a successful flock guardian. After her first litter, her daughter Gerlach BeBe and son Gerlach Beau became the ranch guardians and Fayda became the main house and property guardian.

Fayda had a wonderful temperament and was loving dog. However, she always knew if some one or some thing was not right. She was very protective, staying with sick family members or standing in from of Kathy Gerlach to protect her when strangers came to the property. The day Fayda became ill she still went down to the sheep pen to see her new born lambs.

In 1993 Boaz made the cover of the Anatolian Times (Volume 43). In that issue (pgs 19-20) is an article detailing Boaz's superior working ability and amazing recuperative powers. The article is entitled "The Death to Life Journey of BOAZ the HERO DOG (Kibar Kodaman)" by Kris Bryant.

Boaz was an incredible Anatolian!!!

After his first amazing survival and five days after attending the Anatolian National Speciality in 1994, Boaz was visciously attacked. He suffered from multiple gunshot wounds, and as before he recovered.
