Origin of the South Russian Ovcharka

This breed was purposefully bred starting in 1898. Originally, it is assumed that the breed spread from the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea.

At that time, the Soviet military bred sharp breeds, which should serve to guard the abandoned military installations. Thus, this breed has developed its strong independence and will.

The South Russian Ovcharka has been an officially recognized breed since the 1930s.
