Is the Cypro Kukur right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Kumaon Mastiff

The basics:
The very rare Cypro Kukur can be traced to the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains where it was first bred by the Kumaon tribe. "Cypro Kukur" means "dog from Cypress" in Sanskrit, reflecting the country where the Kumaons themselves believed the breed came from. In reality, it appears to have much more in common with the Indian/Sindh Mastiff. The right owner must know how to socialize and manage a guardian breed with a rather bad reputation. If the animal isn't well-socialized from an early age, it could become aggressive.

Appearance / health:
The Cypro Kukur is a medium-sized dog with a strong body, muscular legs, blunt head, and short muzzle. The neck is short and muscular and the ears are set high on the skull and mostly drooping. The tail is also set high on the back and normally carried erect.

Behavior / temperament:
Although people dispute the legend stating the Cypro Kukur descends from Alexander the Great's war dogs, the myth gives you a good idea of what owners think about this breed's temperament. All guardian dogs must be properly socialized, and you must at all costs avoid creating a one-person animal who represents a danger to your neighborhood or your family. Consistent, responsible training is a must.
