Majorca Shepherd Dog: Origins and history

Since ancient times, the Majorca Shepherd has worked as a herding dog, a watchdog, and a guard dog. Their origins can be traced back to the 13th century. It remains relatively unknown outside of its native Majorca and the breed standard wasn’t written until the 1980s. In 2006, the UK Kennel Club recognised the breed within the herding dog category. Although well-domesticated, the Majorca Shepherd is still a working dog; it is rarely kept as just a pet.
