About the Canaan Dog

Alert, quick to react, and distrustful of strangers, Canaan Dogs are strongly defensive but not naturally aggressive. They are extraordinarily devoted to their owner.

Canaan Dogs are morphologically and historically related to pariah or primitive dogs, like the Dingo in Australia and south-east Asia.
