I got him from the shelter almost a year ago. They labeled him a hound/german shepherd cross, I guess cause of the mask around his face. I don't think that's very accurate at all, especially now that I've come across photos of Anatolians and they have that mask around the eyes, too. He's definitely not as big (only 80 lbs at 11 months) and he obviously doesn't have the black muzzle like many do. But other than that he looks like one to me, has the same face shape, proportions, and very similar coloring. I figured someone who is actually around Anatolians could give me a better guess, though. Thanks.
