Overview
Also referred to as the Polish Lowland Sheepdog, this breed originated during the 13th century. The Polish Owczarek Nizinny's were used in the herding and guarding of sheep and cattle as well as companions.

This breed is relatively rare in the United States.

They are aggressive toward dogs of the same gender and are not recommended for homes with cats or other small pets. As a working breed they were never intended to be household pets; boredom leads to destructive behavior. Polish Owczarek Nizinny are loyal and protective of their family, home, and territory and suspicious and aloof of strangers. They do well with children they have been raised with. This breed is not recommended for fastidious homes. Polish Owczarek Nizinny's are extremely messy as their coat collects all manner of debris.

Activity

They do best in a large securely fenced yard or a rural setting with a job to do. Polish Owczarek Nizinny's enjoy hiking, biking, running, and family interaction.

Ownership
Help reduce the number of Polish Owczarek Nizinny puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.
