Samsun was our first Kangal Dog and holds a vary special place in our hearts. He was a magnificent dog and a great ambassador for the breed. Anyone who met Sam was immediately in awe. He won many people to the Kangal breed. Sam excelled as a livestock guardian dog, gentle as a lamb with young goat kids and fierce as a lion with predators. He loved people and participated in numerous livestock fairs and field days as well as the occasional dog show. We miss him terribly and cling tight to our memories. He will always be our Sam the man!
