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.
In Poland, the Polish Lowland Sheepdog is referred to as the Polski Owczarek Nizinny, or PON. The breed has been featured on Polish postage stamps.
