Ca de Bestiar

Ca de Bestiars have a gaze like no other dog of their kind. Their rather small, slightly almond-shaped eyes, coloured rosemary or carob honey, express intelligence and sadness, with a hint of suspicion.

About the Ca de Bestiar

Ca de Bestiars are big but not overly and of medium weight. They are all black or black with white markings on the breast, well balanced, hardy, strong, muscular, robust and agile. There are two varieties of coat: the short hair, which is more common, and the long hair.

These very noble dogs recognise but one companion and have difficulty bonding with strangers. Intelligent, obedient, affectionate, very timid and reserved when young, they are uncommonly sensitive. A faithful companion to the end, they are courageous and quarrelsome.
