All About Aziat‎ > ‎

Breed history

The Shepherd's dogs of Asia, which are known to dog fanciers as Aziats or Central Asian Ovtcharkas, are probably the oldest dogs in the world and predesessors of all guardian breeds, commonly known today as Molossians.

There is no other breed of dogs in the world, that can be compared to Aziat in their history, beginning more than 4000 B.C., and in the number of countries, pretending to be Aziat Homeland. The history of these dogs reflects the history of civilization itself. To explain their unique abilities, appearance and place in human's life we have to step thousands years back and follow the history of mankind trough space and time, trying to understand how, why and where first guardian dogs appeared,  how they spread all over the world and how they survive almost unchanged until today..
