General Breed Information
The Greek Sheepdog, also known as the Hellenikos Poimenikos, is said to have originated when Turkish travelers brought their dogs with them and these dogs bred with other dogs that were already in the country. Eventually, the Greek Sheepdog was created. It is theorized that the dog brought by the Turkish travelers is the Turkish Akbash Dog. The Greek Sheepdog has been granted official recognition by the Kennel Club of Greece and the American Pet Registry Inc.
