owtsharcharkas were used as bear- and wolf-dogs among sheep in the caucasian Region of Russia.
They do look a bit like sheep, but are able to defend their flock against predators..

If you really want to read up on them, expat, spell it ovtcharka. That should produce a few more "english friendly" sites

Dang, UB, that was quick.
