Description: The Stabyhoun, being of Dutch descent, is a versatile breed that is just as at home fetching fallen quarry as it is catching a ball in the park. They are medium sized dogs that come in colors of black, chocolate, or orange with white markings and roaning or ticking. This breed is said to be related to the Small Munsterlander. Stabyhouns are strong and well muscled. They have a medium length coat that covers the body, being long and feathering on the backs of the hind legs and tail, creating a bushy look in the back. On the ears, a unique characteristic of theirs is the fringed hair on the base of the ear and the smooth fur on the tip. Stabyhouns are more than good looking, though, as they have a high energy level and are very friendly. They are affectionate and good-natured, getting along well with children and other pets. They are calm, patient and easy to get along with. Lively and energetic, however, this breed will highly enjoy hunting and retrieving, playing, going for walks, or other activities. They do require a lot of exercise, therefore a regular routine must be established. They are a handsome breed that remains an ever pleasing appearance in the home.

Country of Origin: Netherlands
History: Originating in Friesland, this breed is only thought to be as old as the 1600s. They were officially recorded in the 1800s, but other evidence suggests they existed before this. It is thought that in the mid-16th century the Spanish brought setting and pointing breeds from Europe, thus creating a string of several other breeds in the future. Of these are the Drentse Patrijshond, Kooikerhondje, German Longhaired Pointer, Large Munsterlander, and of course the Small Munsterlander. The breed has been described as he is today in the 1800s. Paintings of the breed were also documented evidence. The Stabyhoun was used for all purposes, be it hunting, guarding, drafting or simply as a companion. They were only exhibited for show in the 1940s, but soon after this official recognition was given to this lively breed. The Dutch and international organizations accepted the Stabyhoun in 1942. Little known outside its native Netherlands, the Stabyhoun is unfortunately rare and there are strict guidelines on breeding them. A female is to have no more than 5 litters in her lifetime. Originally, Wetterhouns, a relative close to the Staby, was interbred normally with the Stabyhoun. But since their Dutch Kennel Club acceptance the interbreeding has come to a halt. Today the breed is still rather small in numbers, making it have few health problems.
