Polish Lowland Sheepdog

 

If you shrunk an Old English Sheepdog to half her size, the result would look a lot like a Polish Lowland Sheepdog. This breed is cheerful, clownish, and cute until she goes to work. When she's got a job to do, this independent thinker is all strategy, spirit, and stamina.

Her possessive nature can also lead to petty thievery — this is the breed mostly likely to be cast as the Artful Dodger in Oliver Twist. If you can't find your shoe, check her secret stash of socks, dish towels, and other treasures.

Originally from Poland, this medium-sized and medium-energy breed can grow to between 30-50 pounds and lives an average of 12-14 years. The breed is recognized by the American Kennel Club and classified as a member of the Herding group.
