Bucovina Shepherd Dog
The Bucovina Shepherd Dog (Câine Ciobănesc de Bucovina) is one of the largest and most powerful rustic livestock guardian dogs and has strong guard dog qualities. It was developed over many centuries by shepherds in the Carpathian Mountains. The race was developed in Bucovina, a region in the north of Romania. There are four types of Romanian shepherd dogs: the Mioritic (old name Barac), the Carpatin (old name Zăvod), the Romanian Raven Shepherd Dog and the Bucovina Shepherd. In the FCI, this particular breed is officially named "Southeastern European Shepherd", although it originates entirely from Romania, and not neighboring countries.
