Information about the Mioritic

The Mioritic is a large breed of livestock guardian dog that originated in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania.

The Mioritic stands about 65-85 centimetres (26-33 in) tall at the withers and weighs 50-65 kilograms (110-140 lb). This massive dog is covered in thick fluffy hair. It may be white, with or without pale grey or cream patches, or cream or pale grey all over.

This Mountain dog has discipline as one of their main characteristics. It is a calm and well-mannered dog. As this dog was used as a herd protector, he is very attached to family and goes all the way when protecting those he is attached to. Because of this dog’s ability to bond strongly with his master, training should only be started once the Mioritic puppy is already accustomed to the owner/trainer.

The breed was officially recognized by the FCI on July, 6th, 2005 in Buenos Aires.

The breed has a life expectancy of about 12-14 years.
