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.
