its a Caucasian Mountain dog.. not sheps...
they are supposed to be the most nasty dog there is, although to be fair there are probably some nice ones
they were used by the Russian military as guard dogs.
they are dogs that need to be handled by an experienced handler only

what do you mean with the “although to be fair there are probably some nice ones”?
Nice caucasian is the one who bites merciless any intruder and attack any beast to defend its territory, family and flock.
Anything less makes a BAD BAD caucasian for the last 150000 years, when the crime rate was considerably lower than today.
Hope you do not mean that we have to change even a bit the temperament of this dog in the name of modern (more criminally society to my view), unless if there is a way to make it more aggressive and suspicious against strangers.
Any attempt to make this dog nice in other ways, should immediately refer to a new breed with completely different name, not even a trace indicating caucasian ovcharka/shepherd dog/mountain dog etc.
It would be a CRIME to let caucasian follow the sad path of degeneration, that german shepherd, doberman and so many other, nice once upon a time breeds, took.
A CRIME against the ancestors of the breed, both dogs and humans, who struggled for centuries to inborn the specific instincts and pass the specific trait to THEIR breed, IN ORDER TO SERVE FOR GUARDING AND NONE HAS THE RIGHT TO CHANGE ANYTHING WITHIN FEW BREEDING AND SOCIALIZATION CRAP!
If one cannot handle the breed then he should choose from another breed (there hundreds out there with the eye look of the cow, caucasian MUST have the eye look of the tiger or it is not caucasian), but under no circumstances haw the right to contribute destroying the breed.
STOP ABUSING TRUE GUARD DOG BREEDS, choose Saint Bernard, Newfoundland, lionberger, english mastiff, great dane, instead, its a good motto to start with.
Caucasian Ovcharka attacks
Answer by Danica
Actually CF, both names are correct. They are known as Caucasian Ovcharka (Mountain Dog), and Caucasian Shepard. They're amazing sheepdogs. Very headstrong, and must be taught not to hunt the livestock they're protecting.
A Caucasian Ovcharka, is a fierce proud dog, that would never back down from a fight. They will stand up to man and beast alike. Even if the Caucasian Ovcharka didn't win the battle with the wolf, or was outnumbered, the Caucasian Ovcharka would still stand it's ground.
Considering most people buy guard dogs in pairs, so they won't be alone in the field. Two bear faced Caucasian Ovcharka (Mountain Dog)'s, would easily take a wolf down. That's their job.
So the answer to your question is yes.
Though they sure are adorable
