Majorca Shepard (Ca De Bestiar)


The Majorca Shepherd dog is a true warrior; courageous, strong and aggressive, they are excellent choices to guard family or property. Majorca Shepherds are muscular and assertive, and are not for the faint of heart; however, they do bond deeply with their owners, and can be surprisingly playful and affectionate once they feel comfortable.
