In the days of the fall of the Roman Empire, the Huns were among the armies of the Asian invaders who entered Central Europe. It is believed that PONs are the result of breeding Hunnik dogs with native stock in the region now called Poland. PONs were kept at the level of herds of dogs during the day and fearless Guard Dogs at night. In the 1500s, merchants brought PONs to Scotland, where it was thought that they had become a part of the genetic puzzle that formed the Bearded Collie.
