Stabyhoun



    Brief Description: 

    The Stabyhoun or Stabij is one of the top five rarest dog breeds in the world[1][2][3]. It is from Friesland and in particular from the Frisian forest area, a region in the southeast and east of Friesland. The breed has been mentioned in Dutch literature going back to the early 1800s, but has only extended its range from the 1960s outside of Friesland and not until the 2000s did the range officially extend beyond the Netherlands.
