Romanian Carpathian Shepherd Dogs were selected from a native breed of the Carpatho-Danubian area. For centuries the main selection criterion was utility and the breed’s character has been preserved. These brave innate guardians have an instinctive and unconditional attachment to their herd and herdsman. These are dignified, calm, well balanced dogs.Appearance-wise the breed is characterized by a rectangular body, broad, slightly sloping croup, an ample, high rib cage, and long, slightly sloping shoulders. Males and females are easy to tell apart: males are taller and stronger. The first standard was drafted by the National Zoological institute in 1934, but it was not until March 30, 2002 that the Romanian Canine Association adapted the standard to conform with the FCI model.

Native Romanian shepherd dog breeds have existed for centuries, but they were not officially recognized until very recently. The FCI General Assembly ratified the standard in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2005.
