Carea Leonés Dog Breeds
The Carea Leonés , also known as the Leonese Shepherd, is a rather striking herding dog used for centuries by shepherds in Northwestern Spain. Introduced into America by the Spanish when they colonized the United States, the Carea Leonés is believed by some to have contributed towards the likes of the Australian Shepherd, an American dog despite its somewhat confusing name.
By the way, a Carea Leonés appeared in the 2005 epic historical drama, Kingdom of Heaven, by Ridley Scott. Not a lot of people know that!Incidentally, if you have a Carea Leonés and would be happy for your dog to feature on Dogipedia, please send us a photo using the form on the right.
