The Polish Lowland Sheepdog, also known as Polski Owczarek Nizinny or PON, is a medium-sized herding breed originating from Poland. This intelligent and energetic breed is highly valued for its ability to herd and protect livestock.
PONs are known for their loyal and affectionate nature towards their owners. They are highly intelligent and trainable, making them suitable for a variety of activities such as obedience training, agility, and herding. They are energetic and playful, making them great companions for active families. PONs are also known for their protective instincts, making them great watchdogs.
