Is the Armant right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Egyptian Sheepdog; Ermenti; Chien De Berger Egyptian

The basics:
The Armant or Egyptian Sheepdog is a rare herding and guard dog almost unknown outside its home country. The legend claims that this breed descends from dogs who entered Egypt with Napoleon's army to cross with Briard-type local dogs. They are fearless in defense of their flock, including their owner's family, but you should know how to properly socialize a guardian breed.

Appearance / health:
The Armant has a broad head with a medium-sized strong muzzle and small, round, dark eyes. The nose is black and the neck is of medium length and strong. It has a deep and broad chest with well-developed ribs. The feet are small with arched toes and thick pads. The hind legs are powerful with well-bent hocks, while the forelegs are straight and strong. The long tail can either be curled or docked.

The coat requires regular brushing and occasional washing.

Behavior / temperament:
The Armant is a pleasant working dog. It is fearless, loyal, and willing to please. A strong territorial streak is seen in many of these dogs.

Firm, consistent, and kind training is necessary for the Armant. Early obedience training and socialization will help dogs of this breed to adjust with modern life. An irresponsible or careless owner may create a problem animal.
