General Breed Information

The Majorca Shepherd Dog has been existing since the 18th century on the Spanish Balearic Islands, located on the western Mediterranean. Dogs of this breed have been developed for guarding farms. They were also meant to withstand the heat of the Mediterranean region. Due to their ability of working excellently even in intense heat, some specimens of this breed were exported to Brazil, where they are being used as guard dogs on large estates. In 1880, this breed became officially recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale.

Majorca Shepherd Dogs have a straight and strong back with muscular loins. Their chest is broad and deep, with well-sprung ribs. These dogs have a sharply defined head with a medium-sized muzzle that is well-proportioned to their head. Their nose is black, and their teeth meet in either a level or scissors bite. These dogs have a strong and short neck, and their ears are left natural. The eyes of these dogs are small, round, and are set wide. They have strong and straight forelegs, and their hind legs are muscular, with stifles and hocks that are well-bent. The coat of these dogs may be either short or long-haired, and is black in colour.
