Bulgarian Shepherd Dog Description

The Bulgarian Shepherd Dog is a large breed of dog with a muscular frame. They have a broad head with a strong jaw line and smallish, low set ears. Their eyes are generally hazel to brown and very expressive. The tail is usually carried fairly low and is sickle shaped, meaning there is generally a kink in the end of the tail so it naturally curls upwards at the end. Their coat is of medium length and colours do vary with the most common being black and white and the least common being all black.
