On May 25-26, the Union of Cynologists of Kazakhstan held a dog show in Astana, during which a special international commission examined 100 Tazy dogs to evaluate their potential for international recognition as a distinct breed, QazMonitor reports citing the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources.

What it means: Based on the examination results, the commission will inform the General Committee of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) about the breed's potential for international recognition and establishing the "Kazakh Tazy" brand for Kazakhstan. A mandatory requirement for this recognition is to survey the dogs and study the state and prospects of the breed's development in their country of origin.

The Tazy is an indigenous Kazakh breed of dog, a source of pride for the Kazakh people, and one of the seven treasures — the Zhety Kazyna. Currently, measures are being taken to consolidate the efforts of society and the state to preserve and reproduce our breeds, and to protect and support their gene pool from degeneration and crossbreeding. The issues of preserving and reproducing Kazakh breeds of dogs are now addressed at the legislative level, as the Head of State [Kassym-Jomart Tokayev] signed the relevant law of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

said Yerlan Nysanbayev, Minister of Ecology, at the show.
