Mousehole was raided and sacked by the Spanish in 1595. Four galleys with 200 Spanish soldiers, burned the village to the ground, with only the 15th century Keigwin Arms (no longer a pub) surviving.

They survived as barge dogs, and in the early 20th century some baroness dog lover re-popularized the breed as a family pet
