Entlebuch Cattle Dog: Origins and history

This dog is thought to be descended from a general Sennenhund breed brought to Switzerland by Roman armies in the first years of the first millennium. The dog as it is known today was first recorded in 1889 and it was often mistaken for the Appenzeller Sennenhund because of the similar appearance of the two dogs. The breed was almost extinguished during the First World War but is now gaining popularity around the world.
