From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Torkuz is a molosser, a breed of dog of very ancient origins originating in Uzbekistan. This dog may reach 90 kg (200 lb) in weight and over 80 cm (31 in) in height at the withers. Its main function is to protect livestock from predators. In Russia, it has earned the nickname of "Volkodav" which means “wolf crusher”. During the era of the Soviet Union, Russian breeders created the "Central Asian Ovtcharkarka" by mixing several ancestral breeds of Asian molossers like the Alabai of Turkmenistan, the Tobet of Kazakhstan and the Torkuz of Uzbekistan. The Torkuz is one of the original central Asian molosser breeds. Most dogs are white with dark patches of black or brown. The coat is short and dense.
