Different types of dogs
Aksaray Malaklısı is a Molosser-type livestock guardian dog. The breed originated from the central Anatolian city of Aksaray, Turkey. It is the largest of the Anatolian Shepherd dog breeds, superior to the Kangal dog in size. Their name originates from a word used in Aksaray, 'malaklı' meaning 'with lips' due to the breed's black, dropped, notable lips. It looks similar to the English Mastiff and Kangal dog, despite major appearance differences. They are not recognized by any kennel club.
