Bryn mawr cattle dogs

Bryn mawr cattle dogs are a breed of herding dog originating in Wales. Originally bred by farmers for the sole purpose of herding livestock, they have been bred over the years for companionship, hunting, obedience, and protection. Their original name was Brengyn y Mynydd and today the Welsh name is Bryn y môr. They are the second-largest of the three Welsh herding breeds, behind the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. The breed was accepted by the Welsh Kennel Club in 1997, as the first of three breeds to be recognised in Wales.

Appearance

The Bryn mawr is a small, muscular, short-hred dog with a round or oval head and is the heaviest of the three Welsh herding breeds. It is slightly longer than the Cardigan and slightly smaller than the Lleyn.

The head is broad, with a short muzzle and a small, flat, wide-set nose. Eyes are medium size, with well-opened eyelids, and they are almond-shaped, with white fur around the edges. The lips are tight and slightly pendulous and the ears are medium size and carried high on the head. The tl is long and carried close to the body. The back, neck, and shoulders are muscular, and the coat is short and close.

Temperament

The Bryn mawr is a confident, alert dog that is naturally protective. Temperament varies depending on the dog's history, whether they have been rsed around livestock or not, and their environment. The breed standard describes them as being good-natured, intelligent, courageous, alert, bold, and independent. They are playful and love to be with their families.

The breed has been known to have a tendency to be aggressive towards other dogs, and some have been bred for this. However, this is less likely in the purebred population, and dogs in the majority of the population are usually not bred for this purpose. The breed's mn concern is guarding its home, family, and its food and water. If a dog feels that his safety is in danger, he will defend it and attempt to eliminate the threat.

The breed is very loyal to their owner, and they may have a protective nature and tendency to show affection. They can be independent and stubborn and can be territorial. They can become very friendly towards strangers, especially with people that they have known for a long time, and they are often referred to as gentle giants.

History

The Bryn mawr cattle dog is the smallest of the three Welsh herding breeds, with the smallest average weight of about. The largest is the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, which is about. The Brengyn y Mynydd was first recorded in 1730 and it was already known as a working breed. The breed's ancestors were originally bred for the sole purpose of herding livestock, such as cattle, and were not originally bred for companionship. However, they were also good for protection from predators and other livestock. The original name was Brengyn y Mynydd. It means "mountn of the farm". Today the breed is known as Bryn mawr. The breed was accepted by the Welsh Kennel Club in 1997, as the first of three breeds to be recognised in Wales. The Lleyn was the first to be accepted, and the Cardigan was accepted a year later.

The Brengyn y Mynydd, or as it is now known, the Bryn mawr, is one of the smaller breeds of herding dog. Originally bred to herd livestock, it is a working dog, so it is small and has a short coat, similar to a Dachshund. Today, the breed is a popular companion dog.

The Brengyn y Mynydd, or as it is now known, the Bryn mawr, originated in Wales, and its ancestors were bred for herding livestock. The ancestors were bred for herding, and therefore, the dogs were not originally bred for companionship. The original Brengyn y Mynydd had very little in common with the Brengyn y Môr or the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Today, however, they have many similarities, and the name is almost the same. However, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi is the largest of the three.

The Brengyn y Mynydd, or as it is now known, the Bryn mawr, came about in the late 18th century. The original name was Brengyn y Mynydd, or "mountn of the farm". Today the breed is known as Bryn mawr. The Brengyn y Mynydd is one of the smallest of the three Welsh herding breeds. Its ancestor was the Cwmoer, or the "shepherd". The Cwmoer was bred to herd livestock, but also worked for the farmer. The Cwmoer had a lot in common with the Brengyn y Môr or the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. They were both herding dogs. It was accepted as a breed in 1730. The Cwmoer was the earliest working dog, and it was also known as the Cwmoer llwyn. The original Brengyn y Mynydd was a "shepherd", or Cwmoer llwyn. Today, both of these breeds are known as the Brengyn y Môr or the Bryn mawr, and they are very similar. The Cwmoer was smaller than the Brengyn y Môr, and this same small size is seen in the breed today. The Cwmoer also had a shorter coat, and its head was rounder than that of the Brengyn y Môr or the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. The Cwmoer was also slightly longer than the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, and this is also seen in the breed today. The name "Bryn mawr" comes from the original name, and it means "mountn of the farm".
