Hungarian Puli Breeders, Breed Clubs and Rescue
The Hungarian Puli is a dog that makes you smile; in profile both ends are fairly similar and fellow canines find him as surprising as humans do on first sight. A herding dog, he doesn’t have the guarding instincts of many European sheepdogs and so is a much easier pet; although he will guard the home by being very vocal.
Like the Komondor, and in fact the Poodle if the coat is appropriately cared for, the adult coat of the Hungarian Puli is corded and once the cords are established they are quite easy to maintain. In Hungary the coat works well in protecting the Puli from the intense winter cold. The Hungarian Puli was probably introduced by the Magyars as they moved westwards and it is easy to see the resemblance in outline to the Tibetan Terrier.
The Hungarian Puli is a very intelligent dog, friendly and biddable; easily trained he is a lively and energetic dog who enjoys an active life and will expect you to be equally active. The coat, after nine months is corded and in solid colours, either black, white, grey or apricot. It is acceptable for the coat to look weathered or rusty.
The Puli is certainly an interesting dog and if it appeals a chat with a breeder might help you clarify your thoughts.
