The Armant, also known as the Egyptian Sheepdog, is a breed of dog that originated in Egypt. It is a medium-sized breed known for its intelligence, agility, and strong work ethic. Armants are typically recognized by their well-muscled bodies, short coat, and erect ears. They were originally bred for herding and guarding livestock, and as a result, they are protective and loyal to their families. While they may not be as common outside of Egypt, Armants make excellent working dogs and devoted companions for those who appreciate their versatility and heritage.
