Mioritic is a breed of large sheep dogs that originated in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania. They have a height of about 65-75 cm, a weight of 50-60 kg and a life expectancy of about 12-14 years.This massive dog is covered in thick fluffy hair and has one of the best personalities that recommend this breed as a good choice for many owners.

The Mioritic has discipline as one of their main characteristics and 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, Mioritic dog training should only be started once the Mioritic puppy is already accustomed to the owner/trainer. The combined strength and loyalty of the Mioritic recommend the breed as a good choice for guard dogs, pets and flock dogs.
