The Stabyhoun is a medium-sized dog breed that originated in the Netherlands. It is an intelligent, loyal, and friendly breed that makes a great family pet. The Stabyhoun has a unique appearance with its long, silky coat and distinctive black mask. It has a strong, muscular body and an alert expression.

The average lifespan of the Stabyhoun is 12 to 15 years. The size of the breed ranges from 18 to 22 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs between 35 to 45 pounds. The coat colors of the Stabyhoun are black and white or brown and white with tan markings on its face, legs, chest, and tail tip.

The personality of the Stabyhoun is gentle yet independent. They are highly intelligent dogs that can be trained easily but may be stubborn at times. They are loyal companions who love spending time with their families but can also be independent when left alone for extended periods of time.

Stabyhouns are very friendly with other dogs as well as people including children and other animals such as cats if they have been properly socialized from an early age. They make excellent watchdogs due to their alertness but will not bark excessively unless there is something wrong or they feel threatened in some way.

The temperament of the Stabyhoun is calm yet energetic which makes them great companions for active families who enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking or running together with their dog companion by their side!

The health of the Stabyhoun is generally good although they may suffer from hip dysplasia like many other breeds so it’s important to get your pup checked out by a vet regularly for any signs of this condition developing over time if you plan on owning one!

The adaptability level of this breed is high which means they can adjust easily to different environments such as living in apartments or houses without yards provided they get enough exercise each day! Some benefits associated with owning a Stabyhoun include being able to take them on long walks or hikes due to their energy levels; having an intelligent companion who loves learning new tricks; being able to trust them around children; having an alert watchdog; and having a loyal friend who will always be there for you no matter what!


The Stabyhoun is a small, black and brown Dutch dog breed. It is also known as the Stabij or Staby. The name "Stabyhoun" comes from the Dutch words "staan," meaning "to stand," and "hond," meaning "dog." The breed was originally used for hunting small game, such as rabbits and squirrels.

The Stabyhoun almost became extinct in the early 1900s due to a lack of interest in hunting small game. However, a few fanciers of the breed kept it alive. In the 1930s, the Stabyhoun was recognized as a breed by the Dutch Kennel Club.

The Stabyhoun is not well-known outside of its native Netherlands. However, it is gaining popularity due to its friendly and loyal nature. The breed is also relatively healthy, with a life expectancy of 12-14 years.

The Stabyhoun's ancestry is unknown. However, it is thought to be related to other small black and brown dogs from Europe, such as the Welsh Corgi and Dachshund.
