Amajlija

Tanja of Bánáti Haver Háza Kuvasz Kennel in Serbia shares this photo of her Amajlija.

This photo showcases the Kuvasz head and ear set:  

“Although the whole dog is pleasing and well balanced, the most attractive part is the head. This is the Kuvasz’ most distinctive feature....The ears are set high on the head. The upper third of the ears slightly stand away from the head but the rest of the leather droops close to the cheeks. They have the shape of a rounded V.”
