This dog is called the Polish Lowland Sheepdog because it worked for a long time on the lowland plains. This breed comes from corded herding dogs of Hungary and from other small, long-coated mountain herders. Because of the World War II, this breed was brought near extinction. The breed was rescued by some Polish breeders. It is now very popular in Poland and is often used as a companion or a herder.
The Polish Lowland Sheepdog can come in all colors. The most common colors are white with black, gray or sandy patches, or gray and white, or chocolate. As it grows up, the dog gets lighter.
The coat is long, dense, generally straight and bushy. The Polish Lowland Sheepdog has a soft and thick undercoat. The coat can be slightly wavy.
