Breed History / Description

Like the Kuvasz, the Puli owes its origins to Hungarian herding dogs of the Far East, which accompanied the Magyars as they travelled west. One of the Hungarian corded breeds, the puppy coat of loose flocks later cords naturally and provides insulation and protection. Underneath the coat the dog is lightly built and his nimble movement and agility made him fit for function. The Puli is often seen running across the backs of a closely grouped herd. The Hungarian Puli is part of the Pastoral group.


Herding dog, medium-sized, nimble and extremely intelligent. 


Lively, wary of strangers, but not displaying nervousness or unprovoked aggression.
