Get to know the Cao de Castro Laboreiro
All you need to know about the breed
Boundless energy with affability to match, the Cão de Castro Laboreiro breed is little-known outside the Iberian Peninsula with a worldwide population hovering between 250 to 500 of these purebreds. They’re remarkably similar to a black Labrador Retriever (although their coat can be a variety of wolf-colour shades), but the Cão de Castro Laboreiro is a one and only.
Noted for their bravery - a history watching flocks will bring that out - the Cão de Castro Laboreiro is fearless, a trait they bring to the homefront with most anything you ask. The breed is equal parts guardian and faithful companion, along with being quite smart.
One possible downside to the Cão de Castro Laboreiro dog: their loud bark. If neighbors live close, this may be something to think about. The breed can be trained early to respond in the best way possible to any situation.
The Cão de Castro Laboreiro can co-exist with canine friends if raised with them, but their prey drive is a touch elevated; watch them around smaller furry pals as they will have a tendency to chase. The Cão de Castro Laboreiro is known to be excellent with children - once trained around them - and the rest of the family unit, to whom they’re intensely devoted.
