Is the Aidi right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Chien de l'Atlas; Atlas Shepherd Dog; Atlas Mountain Dog; Kabyle Dog; Atlas-Schäferhund; Perro de pa

The basics:
The little-known Aidi is a North African guardian dog that defended flocks and property against jackals, bears, wolves and other predators. A mountain dog native to Morocco, it is believed to originate in the Sahara. As a consequence, this breed is a tough and powerful watchdog that demands kind, consistent, and responsible training by an owner experienced with guardian breeds.

The Federation Cynalogique Internationale (FCI) is one of the few prominent registries that recognize the Aidi.

Appearance / health:
The Aidi has a slim and muscular body with a bear-like head in proportion to the rest of the body. The muzzle is tapered with a black or brown nose that usually matches the coat. They have strong jaws with tight black or brown lips and the medium-sized ears tip forward and drop slightly.

Behavior / temperament:
Aidis have a protective nature, having a tendency to protect their owner and loved ones from predators and strangers with courage. Always alert and ready for action, these dogs have an exceptional nose, and make good hunting dogs. They are busy dogs that require a job to do. The breed responds best to kind and firm training.
