    Portuguese Sheepdog |Portugal|

    This rare indigenous Portuguese breed is also known as the Cäo da Serra de Aires or the Cäo Macaco, meaning “monkey-faced dog,” a reference to the long hair on its face and its cheeky, lively personality. This is an old-fashioned type of sheepdog that has some similarities to Pyrenean Sheepdogs and Briards, and was traditionally used for herding and guarding livestock such as sheep, goats, cattle, and even horses in remote rural areas. They retain strong herding instincts and are an intelligent, trainable breed. They also make good companion animals and are adept at agility and obedience competitions, as well as herding events.
