General info

The Appenzeller Mountain Dog, this is the rarest of the four ancient Swiss mountain dog breeds. He got his start as an all-around farm dog herding livestock, pulling carts, and guarding the farm in the Appenzell region of Switzerland. Today the Appenzeller's known for being a versatile working and family dog who's smart, cheerful, self-assured, reliable, and fearless. He's a great friend of children, but may nip at their heels as if they were livestock to be herded; younger Appenzellers are big and exuberant enough to accidentally knock over small kids. Because he's got a strong work ethic and lots of energy, this breed isn't suited to an inactive lifestyle. Like other breeds that need lots of exercise and stimulation, he can grow bored and destructive if he doesn't get it.
