Ponta da Pinta

a Ponta da Pinta

Ponta da Pinta was founded in 2001,

with the specific purpose of contributing to the conservation of the Estrela Mountain Dog according to its original function as a livestock guardian dog.


My ethical, technical breeding work stems from respect for the breed and aims at its betterment, by combining empyrical experience and the study of genetics appplied to the control of hereditary diseases.

Freita Lobo Ibérico

our goddaughter

A Ponta da Pinta sponsored lovely 7-year-old Freita, one of the resident wolves of the Iberian Wolf Recovery Center, in Portugal. This way, we support the Grupo Lobo association, whose mission is the conservation of this magnificent species, to which the Estrela Mountain Dog owes its existence as a livestock guardian dog.
