Origin, classification and history

Origin: Egypt.
F.C.I classification: RACE NOT RECOGNIZED

This type of dog is not very popular even in its country of origin and has an exclusively local diffusion. It originates from an area of ​​northern Egypt, from which it takes its name. This particular dog may have come from the east and may have followed an evolutionary process very similar to that of European Shepherds. Another hypothesis maintains that it is a breed created by the coupling of dogs imported from Europe in the eighteenth century with local dogs; the latter hypothesis attributes to the Egyptian Shepherd less antiquity than the previous one.
