The Stabyhoun or Stabij is one of the rarest dog breeds in the world.[1] There are only about 6000 dogs of this type in the world.[2] It is a spaniel type of working dog.

History[change | change source]

The Stabyhoun was first noted in the Netherlands in the early 1800s where it was used as a working dog on farms and for hunting, specifically in the province of Friesland.[2]

Colour[change | change source]

These dogs are usually black and white, with a smaller number being brown and white and very small number of yellow and white examples.[3]

Temperment[change | change source]

The Stabyhoun is a gentle breed that is patient with children and other dogs. To keep them happy, like all gun dogs, they need a lot of exercise.[4]
