Powerful and agile, the Aidi dog is a mountain dog that protects its owner and property with splendid courage. This rustic breed, the Aidi dog, is from Morocco. A misnomer regarding this breed is that they were sheepdogs and tended to flocks. A 1963 breed standard had to be nullified in 1969 because it listed this dog as the Atlas Sheepdog, but the correct name is Aidi dog.
Also called Atlas Shepherd, Chien de l'Atlas.
