OUR ESTEEMED KANGALS
ILKEL ASALET ERKAN - The Progenitor of Passion:
Arriving in 2018, Erkan ignited our passion for Kangals. As the first Kangal shepherd registered in Belarus in 2018, he has set a high standard with his intelligence, steadfast psyche, and unwavering obedience. Erkan's prestigious titles include Champion of Belarus, Russia, and Lithuania. His debut at the "Russia-2018" international exhibition as a junior was met with high praise, adjudicated by KIF President Umit Ozkanal, solidifying his status as our kennel's most decorated dog.
GERDA OT V.K. KANGAL TURK KAN - The Maternal Marvel:
Gerda joined us in the same year as Erkan, bringing with her a noble lineage from Turkey's esteemed Kangals. Her ancestry boasts of legends like her father C'Samtad Yurekli Kazana and her great-grandfather Panther, a renowned Sivas wolfhound. Known for her wolf-like grey-pale coat, Gerda is not just a gentle soul and affectionate guardian but also a nurturing mother to her litters. Her titles as Champion of Belarus, Russia, and Lithuania speak volumes of her pedigree and grace.
IZMIR OT V.K. KANGAL TURK KAN - The Promising Protégé:
Our youngest male, Izmir, arrived in 2021 with expectations high, and he has not disappointed. His impeccable build and breed qualities have earned him the titles of Champion of Belarus and Russia. At the Minsk international exhibition in 2021, expert Ozan Belkis highlighted Izmir's exceptional breed characteristics, predicting a bright future for him in tribal work.
ALMIRA SELIM KANGAL - The Legacy Continuer:
Born in October 2019 within our kennel, Almira is a testament to the esteemed qualities of her parents, Erkan and Gerda. She has inherited their character, psychic strength, and protective instincts, along with Gerda's distinctive grey-pale coat. Almira, too, has proven her worth by winning the Champion titles of Belarus and Russia. Her victory at the 2021 Minsk international exhibition, under the judgment of Ozan Belkis, solidifies her position as a worthy heir to her legendary ancestors.
Since our inception in 2019, "Selim Kangal" has been recognized by the FCI as Belarus's sole Kangal breeding kennel, a testament to our commitment to purity and excellence. Our approach to breeding focuses on health, conformation, and a stable psyche, ensuring our Kangals are well-prepared for both show rings and as loyal companions.

This recognition fuels our dedication to spreading love and respect for Kangals far and wide.

The story of our first Kangal began in 2017, following our move to the countryside near Minsk. In pursuit of a guardian for our home, fate guided us to the Kangal breed through the informative "Planet of Dogs" show hosted by Grigory Manev.

Our experience over the years with male and female dogs, along with their puppies, has only solidified our trust in the Kangal breed. Here's why:
At Selim Kangal, we are proud to introduce our cherished family of Kangals, consisting of two distinguished males and two exceptional females, each bringing their unique lineage and character to our kennel.
