The Polish Lowland is thought to have descended from the Icelandic Sheepdog. Breed experts have suggested that the dog was in existence at the time of Attila the Hun (5th Century AD). In 1514 Polish Lowlands were brought by boat to Scotland. The dog’s popularity in Britain both as a herder and family pet has steadily risen since then. It is still not a commonly seen dog.
