Similarly to the herding dogs described by ancient Roman writers, many flock guardian dogs are white in color. White was the preferred color to differentiate these dogs from the predators, which are usually darker in color. The white coat color also made that de dog was more easily accepted by the flock and allowed them to blend in with the flock at night, offering an increased protection against predators.
