Polish Lowland Sheepdog

Bred for centuries in his native Poland to herd livestock, the long coated Polish Lowland Sheepdog counts the Hungarian Puli among his ancestors. His native name 'Polski Owczarek Nizinny' has been shortened to earn the breed the affection name 'Pons'. 

History has it that the breed arrived in Britain when trading sailors from Gdansk arrived in Scottish ports bringing the dogs with them. Those original long coated sheepdogs are thought to have been instrumental in the later development of breeds such as the Beared Collie.

Unsurprisingly then, not dissimilar to the Bearded Collie, but often born without a tail, the Polish Lowland Sheepdog is an adaptable, trainable, lively character with an excellent memory and a stable temperament. Alert and watchful, affectionate and loyal, lively and active, like most highly intelligent breeds, the Polish Lowland Sheepdog thrives on rewarding and regular stimulation.
