The PON is a strong, well muscled, thick-coated dog. The double coat can be of any color or pattern; white, gray, and brown are most common, with black, gray, or brown markings.
Polish Lowland Sheepdogs are stable and self-confident. They have an excellent memory and can be well trained, but may dominate a weak owner.
PONs adapt well to various conditions, and are popular as companion dogs. PONs require a moderate amount of exercise daily.
