We are dealing here with a dog of medium
size and weight, and medium build. Again, balance and correct proportions are essential.
Males may be noticeably larger and stronger than females, but with both males and females, our aim is towards the middle
of the range described and not to the extremes. The Canaan should not appear
to be a large or heavy dog, but neither is he small and overly refined. This
is a medium sized but powerful appearing dog that obviously appears capable of surviving in difficult conditions and defending
himself and his property.
