The Karakachan or Bulgarian Sheep (Shepherd) Dog.

You can see from the photograph above that they are now bigger than most fully grown dogs, full grown they will be about the size of a St Bernard dog.

We still feed the shepherds dogs through the mesh fence at the back of our house, and Sasha I think sees them as a threat. She growls and barks at them if they come too close. Metcho, the Bulgarian Shepherd Dog that we feed is now firmly entrenched outside our house and Sasha is fine with him.

The problem we now face is that if we have any visitors to the house Metcho fiercely keeps them at bay. I have to go out in the street and take him for a walk until our guests are in the house. I guess in his eyes he is paying for his keep by guarding his house, which he now considers to be his house. In the morning when the Shepherd takes his sheep down our street en route to the fields, Metcho ups and joins them and goes off to work. When the sheep are taken back to the village, Metcho comes back to our house.

When I asked what were the names of his other three sheepdogs the shepherd said they were all named Metcho, so we have named three of them ourselves, Tyrone, Metcho, Monkey and Lady. I have dedicated a special page for them here.
