Sevdah comes from a breed of dogs called Tornjak, native to Bosnia and Croatia with respective differences depending on the country the dog comes from. It is a livestock guardian dog. They are a molosser-type mountain dog, similar to other livestock guardian breeds of the region.
A typical adult Tornjak is very calm, peaceful and an indifferent animal at first sight, but when the situation demands it, it is a vigilant and very alert watchdog. The character is equal to the temperament; they are not nervous nor aggressive.
In general, they are very tough, not too demanding, sturdy dogs. With their human family, they are very emotional. When living in a pack they are highly social animals, without fighting between the pack members.
