Cuvac slovac

Cuvac slovac

Impunătorul și puternicul Slovensky Cuvac sau – în traducere – cuvacul slovac a fost inițial un câine de stână. De aceea s-a pus deja un accent mare pe obținerea de exemplare curajoase și rezistente pe tot parcursul creșterii rasei. S-a dorit ca aceștia să fie totodată echilibrați și de încredere. Câinii acestei rase sunt foarte loiali față de familia lor. Chiar și în prezent, aceștia sunt folosiți izolat ca și câini de cireadă, respectiv de turmp, nu doar în munții Slovaciei.
