Country of Origin:

Known since the Middle Ages, when it was used for hunting (stag-hunting). Later on it was used mainly as a guard dog for large farms and manors. At the end of the 18th century these dogs were breeding pure and increased in number thanks to the royal game keeper Sehested of Broholm, from where the breed has inherited its name. After the Second World War the breed almost became extinct, but around 1975 a group of committed people organized a group called "The Society for Reconstruction of the Broholmer Breed". They were supported by the Danish Kennel Club and began the work of reviving the breed.
