Wikipedia:
The dog breed is named for the Šar Mountains. It is alternatively named the Yugoslavian Shepherd Dog by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (1980), Albanian Mountain Dog, and Šarplaninec. The breed was initially standardised by the Yugoslavian Federation of Cynology (Jugoslovenski kinološki savez, JKS) and recognised as a Yugoslavian breed with two types by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) in 1939 under the designation Ilirski ovčar ("Illyrian Shepherd Dog"), FCI-Standard N° 41. Kraški ovčar and Šarplaninac were considered Type A and B of the breed. In 1957 the General Assembly of the F.C.I. accepted a motion proposed by the Yugoslavian Federation of Cynology to change the name of the breed to Jugoslovenski ovčarski pas Šarplaninac ("Yugoslavian Shepherd Dog Sharplanina"), and this is the official name of the breed. In 1968, type B was recognised as a separate breed under the designation Kraški ovčar ("Karst Shepherd Dog"). The breed was formerly known as Ilirski Ovčar (Cyrillic: Илирски овчар, "Illyrian Shepherd Dog") before it was renamed in 1957.

Origin
This breed and its origin are associated with the Šar Mountains region in North Macedonia, Kosovo and Albania, which is how it got its name. For that reason some sources have described it as a North Macedonia and Kosovo breed. After the collapse of Yugoslavia, Macedonia and Serbia were recognised by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale as the countries of origin.

The Šarplaninac is a large, strongly built dog. The body is slightly longer than the height at the withers, and the front legs account for approximately 55% of the height. The head is large but proportional to the body, with dark eyes.

The Šarplaninac is a robust, well proportioned dog with plenty of bone, of a size that is well above the average and with a thick, long, rather coarse coat that emphasizes the short coupled appearance. According to the FCI breed standard males should weigh between 35 and 45 kilograms (77 and 99 lb) with females slightly smaller at around 30–40 kilograms (66–88 lb). The average height is quoted as 62 centimetres (24 in) for males with females at 58 centimetres (23 in).

The coat is dense, about 4 inches (10 cm) in length, and can be rough or smooth.

All Šarplaninac are solid in colour: fawn, iron grey, white or almost black; usually sable or gray with darker "overalls" on the head and back, the undercoat being paler. The colour need not be completely uniform, and most Šarplaninac have several different shades of the same colour fading into one another. There are no bicolours and no uniformly black-coated dogs among purebreds, but odd-coloured specimens do exist. The dogs must not have large white patches in their coat.

Training of Šarplaninac in Yugoslav People's Army:
Dogs of the breed spend the summer in the area of the Šar Mountains and the winter in Thessaly, Greece, depending on the needs of the sheep they are used to protect.
