Origin The Estrela Mountain Dog was developed in the Serra da Estrela Mountains of Portugal. They are the oldest of the Iberian Peninsula breeds and descendant from ancient dogs. Since there are no written records for this breed, it is unknown if they were brought to the area by Romans during the Iberian colonization or later by invading Visigoths. Despite their roots, the Estrela Mountain Dog is one of the oldest breeds in Portugal. They were specifically bred to survive the mountain environment, protect the flocks and be a companion to shepherds. Since the region was isolated, breeding with non-native dogs was extremely limited leading to purity of the breed. Up until the early 1900s, Estrela Mountain Dogs were unknown outside of their native Portugal. The breed was finally brought to Great Britain in 1974 and then introduced to other countries throughout the world. They were recognized by United Kennel Club in 1996 and have been accepted for recording in the AKC Foundation Stock Service®.
