Did You Know?

If you had sheep or cattle to guard or herd back in late 19th century Hungary, then the Mudi was the dog for you. They would also be the dog for you if you liked to hunt wild boar, or perhaps had a vermin problem.

Keen and courageous, this breed is very smart, and has been put to several uses over the years, including being search and rescue dogs.

They are very closely related to two other Hungarian breeds, the Puli and the Pumi. It’s thought they evolved naturally from crosses between these two breeds and German Spitz type dogs.

Though not found in huge numbers around the world, they still attract huge fans.
