Karay was a shaggy old dog with a hanging jowl, famous for having tackled a big wolf unaided.
They are shorter in the heads and legs, and fuller at the jowl, thicker and more compact in the body.
The head is long, light in the jowl, and wide between the eyes, with long thin ears inclined slightly forward and fringed with long fine hair.
The head and legs are very short, and the body short, thick and wide; the jowl is heavy, the ears pricked, and the thin skin laden with long silky, wavy, but not curly, hair, whilst the tail is very fine.
It has a moderately short head with heavy jowl, a deep, compact carcase, and wide, low and well-developed hind-quarters, with heavy hams. The skin carries an abundance of fine hair.
