Learn more about this unique breed with our collection of Estrela Mountain Dog photos!

The Estrela Mountain Dog is one of Portugal’s oldest breeds. Although there isn’t much historical information, it’s likely this breed’s ancestors came through Portugal with Roman imperial soldiers. They’re named for the isolated Estrela Mountain Range. In their native country, they’ve served as herding dogs and livestock protectors for centuries.

Estrela Mountain Dogs can be either long-haired or short-haired. Both have a wavy double coat. They shed quite a bit. Their coats come in a variety of colors, and they can have either a black or white face mask. Brush your Estrela Mountain Dog weekly and bathe them occasionally. It’s important to check their ears regularly for debris and signs of infection.

A Playful Dog

While Estrela Mountain Dogs have some playful energy, they have mostly calm temperaments. They do well with daily exercise, and will need the space and freedom to roam. Without mental stimulation, this breed can develop destructive behaviors. Estrela Mountain Dogs have done well in organized canine sports.

Estrela Mountain Dogs are very affectionate towards their families. They do very well with kids of all ages, and are okay with other dogs. This breed tends to be more vigilant and reserved around strangers. You can counteract this tendency with proper puppy socialization.

To truly understand this breed you can look at some of these photos of the dog from a puppy right through to a senior dog.
