Gentle Giants. What's the breed?

Alaska (the white one) is an Akbash and Togo is a 4-way (Maremma, Pyr, Anatolian, and Akbash) crossed with a purebred Sarplaninac. Togo is under weight and he weighs 120lbs. I have no idea what Alaska weighs right now 'cause she keeps growing!

I've heard of Akbashes (we have a Pyraneese/Akbash mix) and we have two Anatolians. I thought I saw similarities in features. Never heard of those other two, though. Sounds pretty exotic! I was hestitant at the thought of getting Anatolians at first. I couldn't figure out why my husband wanted such big powerful dogs (120-150 pounds for the males and tales of chasing off grizly bear), but they are both just sweethearts. Yours look pretty sweet, too!

Maremma are the Italian LGD.
Very common here in Australia.
