Puli

  

 

Why, that dog is practically a Phi Beta Kappa. She can sit up and beg, and she can give her paw - I don't say she will, but she can.

Considered the national treasure of Hungary, the Puli was first brought to that country from central Asia by invading Magyars in the 800s A.D. 

The Puli is an expert sheep herder and guardian of the flock. The Puli will also hunt birds and small game and retrieve from land and water.

A working Puli is a wonder to behold! He runs across the backs of sheep to get from one side of the flock to another. He jumps on the back of a runaway and rides it until the animal is tired. The Puli then herds it back to the flock. 

The Puli stands up to 18 inches at the shoulder and has a remarkable long, shaggy, double coat that curls into natural cords. It may be black, reddish black, grey, or white. Although the coat does not shed, it requires some special grooming to keep it free of mats. The coat is water-repellent, insulates against extreme cold and heat, and protects the Puli from attacking animals.  

The Puli is an active, lively, amusing, high-spirited member of the family. He is a loyal and faithful companion. He should not, therefore, be left outside in a kennel. The Puli is a herding dog at heart. This instinct may show up in attempts to herd children or family pets!  An excellent watch dog, the Puli is responsive, obedient, and agile. 

Obedience training is important for the Puli. He is a highly intelligent dog who may find some aspects of training boring. Innovative and creative techniques may be required. The Puli's owner must be a strong leader with the time and energy to train, groom, exercise, and socialize the dog. As a working dog, the Puli is very energetic. Once full-grown, he makes a great jogging partner as he will happily keep up with the most athletic runner.
