The Puli came from Hungary over 1,000 years ago and originally used for sheep herding. This rare breed has been likened to a bouncing spring and is known for its unique outer coat that resembles dreadlocks, made of cord-like hair that grows after puppyhood. They can be in colors of black, gray and white with a medium, solid frame. Both their outer and undercoat need a lot of maintenance or it can be cut short. The Puli are affectionate, smart, and quick learners, as well as alert, making them wonderful watchdogs and family guardians. They have a strong temperament and will need vigorous exercise as they have a lot of energy to burn.
