Originating the the region now known as Bosnia, Herzegovina and Croatia, the Tornjak was accustomed to hunting in a harsh climate over rough terrain. Documents as far back as the 14th century reference the Tornjak and their ability to herd, guard and fight. The original Tornjak became nearly extinct and was resurrected by dedicated breeders in the 1970s. Accustomed to living in packs, the Tornjak is very social, and is a very devoted and calm family pet. The Tornjak has a reputation for being a very intelligent breed, easily trained and rarely forgets. Their coat is short but exceptionally dense allowing them to romp in the snow without freezing.

Surviving on their own for centuries the Tornjak survived on a high protein diet of hunting spoils and barn vermin. The Tornjak needs plenty of room to roam and run and does not do well in small urban apartments. This large and rather powerful breed can weigh in at up to 110 pounds and stand as high as 28 inches. The Tornjak should be trained with a firm hand but treats should be limited lest they run the risk of becoming overweight. Named for their ability to herd and corral, Tor is the translation of "enclosure for cattle and sheep". Today's Tornjak generally don't need to forage farther than the kitchen for a bowl of food. They do need fewer calories than their ancestors given their reduced activity levels.
