The majestic dog in these photos has since passed away but we are very fortunate to have acquired straws for a single breeding thanks to Mary Hughes of Kangal Dog Town. Mary received these valued straws from Elisabeth von Buchwaldt, owner of Odaci's Python of The perfect conformation of this stud speaks for itself in these photos but the story of Python and his exceptional temperament can best be told by Elisabeth herself in the letter she wrote to Mary; Python's story

Sire: Cicek's Python protected sheep and goats on the Anatolian Plateau. The Cicek family have been breeding Kangal dogs in the Sivas province for over 75 years.

Dam: Odaci's Ceylan protected sheep and goats on the Anatolian Plateau before being brought to Germany by Ogun Odaci.  Ceylan traces her lineage back to Turhan Kangal's famous Balak and Cali Filiz.
