Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. -The Cumberland sheepdog is an extinct dog breed related to the border collie and other old working collie types. It is claimed to be one of the ancestors of the Australian shepherd and in the early part of the 20th Century some Cumberland sheepdogs were being referred to as border bollies and may have been absorbed into the latter breed. Cumberland sheepdogs were described in Dogs In Britain, A Description of All Native Breeds and Most Foreign Breeds in Britain by Clifford LB Hubbard, 1948. By 1948, not much was heard of the breed although it had been in the north of England for a very considerable time. From the Peak District to the Cheviots, particularly on the eastern side, the Cumberland sheepdog was considered an excellent working breed. The late Lord Lonsdale was a great admirer of Cumberland sheepdogs and owned many throughout his life. The breed had been in his family for more than a hundred years and he attempted to save it from extinction.show more
