In the waning days of the Roman Empire, the Huns were among the tribes of Asian invaders who spilled into central Europe. It’s believed that Polish Lowland Sheepdogs are the result of breeding Hunnic dogs with native stock in the region now known as Poland. They were bred to be levelheaded flock dogs by day and fearless guard dogs by night. In the 1500s, traders brought this dog to Scotland, where it’s thought they became a piece of the genetic puzzle that formed the Bearded Collie.
