GENERAL
The Cypro Kukur is an ancient and rare dog breed originating in Kumaon area of India. Also known as Kumaon Mastiff, the dog has a history that goes back to some 300 years B.C. The dog is believed to have been brought in the area by Alexander when he invaded this region. Local people bred this dog as guard dog. The breed is now facing danger of extinction and a very small number of pure Cypro Kukur remain in the area of its origin.
