The Carpathian Mountains are close to where the Romanian Mioritic Shepherd Dog originated. The breed is quite amazing in terms of size and personality.
The Mioritic Sheepdog is a typical livestock guarding dog (LGD), having protected cattle in its native Romania for millennia. He is pleasant, devoted to his family, trustworthy, independent, and fiercely protective, but he has a high level of suspicion for outsiders. Like any dog of this size and temperament, it has a long coat that needs regular care. It also needs daily exercise and some basic obedience training, as do all large dogs. Mioritics are vivacious and independent, but underneath their furry armor, they are extremely sensitive beings. They remain loyal to the pack that has accepted them as puppies. This might be any animal, including a dog, cat, horse, or sheep. The Mioritic requires very deep family relationships, and it believes that a house without doors would be ideal.
The weather has a significant impact on this, no doubt. Its favorite person and place are always quite close to one another. It chooses where it will rest on its own. especially though a couch or carpet may be included, shepherds typically prefer to sleep on hard ground, especially as young animals. They don’t require dog baskets, specific beds, or even a designated space. No ‘job making’ program is required, but everyday treks and walks offer fun variety.
