Estrela Mountain Dog
Sturdy and well built, the Estrela Mountain Dog is a mastiff type, but athletic rather than cumbersome. This powerful, large breed comes in long and short haired varieties. The long-coated dogs have a thick, slightly coarse coat of flat or slightly waved outer-hairs and a dense lighter coloured undercoat. The short coat should be thick and slightly coarse without being too harsh, and still have the dense undercoat.
