So you’re looking to adopt an Polish Lowland Sheepdog, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “First, about that nickname: PON is the acronym for the Polish breed name, Polski Owczarek Nizinny. PONs aren’t particularly large dogs, standing no more than 20 inches at the shoulder, but they are muscular and stocky. The rectangular body is covered head to toe with a double coat—long and shaggy on top, soft and dense below, and it comes in several colors. The head’s profuse coat covers the eyes, which convey the keen, penetrating gaze so common in watchdogs and herders. A shaggy-coated herding dog who thrives on exercise and hard work, the Polish Lowland Sheepdog is clever, confident, and a bit stubborn. Compact, alert, and adaptable, they are beloved companions and watchdogs of Polish city dwellers.”
An Polish Lowland Sheepdog typically ranges from 43.18cm to 50.8cm in height, and weighs from 13.6077711kg to 22.6796185kg.
