So you’re looking to adopt an Appenzeller Sennenhund, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “The Appenzeller Sennenhund is also known as the Appenzeller Mountain Dog or Appenzell Cattle Dog. He is lively, high-spirited, self-assured, reliable, and fearless. Slightly suspicious of strangers, he is a good watchdog who cannot be bribed. The breed’s intelligence make them highly capable learners. Due to his personality and exercise needs, he is ill-suited to apartment living. The Appenzeller Sennenhund is tri-color, medium-sized, and almost squarely built and balanced. He is muscular and agile and makes a good driving, watch, guard, house or farm dog. Due to their versatility and willingness, they excel in agility, obedience, herding and search and rescue.”
An Appenzeller Sennenhund typically ranges from 48.26cm to 55.88cm in height, and weighs from 21.772433760000002kg to 31.751465900000003kg.
