Polish Owczarek Nizinny Puppies
Description: The Polish Lowland Sheepdogs are medium-sized, strong, muscular, shaggy dogs with a long coat that covers their eyes and body. They may be born without a tail or their tail is docked at birth. Their willingness to please and devotion to their family make them great companions while at the same time a superb watchdog always on the alert for strangers. A Polish Lowland Sheepdog's amusing ways and floppy bodies make them highly lovable. They excel at almost any task they choose to undertake and are highly adaptable and suitable to almost any lifestyle. However, the breed has been known to get into mischief if left in the house alone too long. They can be stubborn and are a very independent breed. They are lively, intelligent and affectionate. They are known to have an exceptionally good memory for a dog - some remembering favors or offenses years after they have happened. The PON has eyes that are said to be "penetrating", and their lovable attitudes make them an ideal choice for the owner with a family.
