This breed is just as playful as the others but a little less friendly towards strangers so socialization is essential. Turkish Vans are known for picking favorites in the family and when they do they create an intense bond. If your dog takes a liking to your Turkish Van, it wouldn’t be surprising for this breed to create the same bond with your dog. This intelligent breed is also a fan of games much like your dog although they are known to be very clumsy so breakables are not recommended. One of the most notable characteristics of this breed is their nose, not because it’s unusual in appearance, but because it changes colors when it becomes angry. It’s important to pay attention to this when your cat is playing with your dog so watch out for the red nose signaling a fight is about to begin.
