Ivan

Ivan

Caucasian Ovcharka
Ivan is the only one of his breed actively working as a SAR dog that we know of. The breed originated in the Caucasus Mountains in Southeast Europe as a flock guardian. Our first Caucasian was to protect our Bloodhounds, before we brought him home we decided that if he would do the work he would be a SAR dog. Hawk was a very good SAR dog, Ivan carries on the tradition, doing mantrailing. Ivan has been doing pet therapy at area nursing homes since he was about 3 months old.
