About the Estrela Mountain Dog

Estrela Mountain Dogs are mastiff-type molossoid dogs. Well balanced, compact and hardy, they earn respect from strangers through their firm, reserved behaviour.

They are remarkably obedient to their owner and a loyal, inseparable companion. They work relentlessly to protect the flock from wolves and rustlers.
