Canaan Dog

This dog of Israeli origin measures between 50cm and 60cm and weighs between 18kg and 25kg. He has a good frame and a muscular body without being heavy. His hair is long and usually white, cream, gray or brown. It can also be spotted. This is an excellent guard: it reacts quickly to the slightest alarm and will notify you by barking immediately. Although protective, it is not an aggressive animal: he is very affectionate with the family and children in particular, and may even be jealous if they play with other children! Did you know that it is widely used by the military as a messenger and rescuer dog, and also as a blind dog in general?
