Visitors admire new-born puppies in Turkey’s Aksaray
AA PhotoA group of six new-born puppies known as “Malaklı” has left visitors in admiration in the central Anatolian province of Aksaray.
Fatih Dağdaş, the breeder of the Bandogs, said the puppies were born 15 days ago, noting that they need special care particularly in the winter.
“These puppies should be fed with a specific meal made of eggs, milk and wheat flour. If the weather is cold I take them to warm rooms. They are like my children. I love them. This is my hobby,” he said.
The dogs “Malaklı,” whose names refer to their hanging lips, are named after the region they come from. They can grow up to 130 centimeters and can weigh 90 kilograms at most.
Dağdaş has been living in Aksaray for the past 20 years and has taken care of scores of dogs of this breed.
“These kinds of dogs need more efforts and attention than other types. We are trying our best to grow them until they reach a big size,” he said.
The “Malaklı” dogs have the ability to grow more than Sivas Kangal dogs.
