More details about the Drentsche Partridge Dog

Drentsche Partridge Dog: Origins and history

The Partridge dog was developed in the Drenthe region of the Netherlands during the sixteenth century. Although she was primarily used as a hunting and retrieving dog, she often did extra work as a guard dog. 

The Drentse Patrijshond is also much stronger than she looks and many farmers and merchants used this breed to pull carts loaded with goods. 

Today, there are an estimated 5,000 Partridge Dogs registered in the Netherlands. It remains relatively unknown throughout the rest of the world and wasn't recognised by American Kennel clubs until 2010.
