PURINA: Your Pet, Our Passion

Polish Lowland Sheepdog

Bred to herd and guard sheep, the Polish Lowland Sheepdog has a sturdy, muscular body and confident demeanor. He is an obedient, loyal companion with an even temperament. A clever, happy breed, the Polish Lowland Sheepdog requires regular moderate physical and mental exercise. His thick, shaggy coat, which hangs over his oval-shaped eyes, should be groomed daily to avoid tangles.
Living Considerations
  • Good with older children
  • Not hypoallergenic
  • Suitable for apartment living if adequately exercised
