All Dog Breeds >>Polish Lowland Sheepdog
It is thought that the PON descended from the coated working dogs developed in Central Asia, including the Tibetan Terrier and Lhasa Apso. The Tibetan people were avid traders, so the dogs moved across Asia and into Europe, where the sheepdogs were intermixed with local working dogs. The PON has been known in Poland since before the 16th century, where he is used for herding and guarding.
Polish Lowland Sheepdog Breed for you ?
When not used as a herding or working dog, the PON can fit into any type of lifestyle. His medium size makes him suitable for apartments or the farm. While affectionate and loving toward their family and children, PONs may be suspicious of strangers. Training should start early, as the PON is independent and can be stubborn. The breed’s coat requires daily brushing to prevent mats.
