Hellenikos Pimenikos (Greek sheepdog) is a primitive mountain type pastoral dog that is placed in Group 2 of the F.C.I. classification. It is thought to have descended from Greek molossoid dogs as these evolved through the centuries with genetic contributions from other mountain flock guardians of Greece. It is a robust dog with a good physique and strong skeleton. The breed club “Friends of the Greek Sheepdog” (www.ofep.gr) was founded in 2000 to promote the breed.
