Dear valued lady Gyöngyi Hajnal;
I am investigating the "Turkish Shepherd Dogs", Karabaş (Kangal) and Akbas breeds, whose history and geography originated in Central Asia for about 60 years. I accepted your gentle invitation with respect. Thank you.
Akbas Çoban Köpeði ırkı carries the same DNA as the national shepherd dog of Hungarian Kuvasz ırkı. They are very close relatives. On April 24th, 2010, I worked with Prof. Ercüment Yalçınkaya and Roni Bey, residing in Budapest, for a week at the invitation of the University of Budapest academicians and Kuvasz researchers. In this work, Kürşat Kılıç was Turkish-Hungarian translator. I participated in scientific studies in Connected University in USA, Manas University in Kyrgyzstan and Istanbul University in 2002.…
I will send a video about Akbas to be viewed visually.
I present my love and respect,
