Puli

Puli (pl. pulik), breed of herding dog, used as a sheepdog in Hungary for more than 1000 years. Brought in by the Magyars, it may have originated from the Tibetan terrier. This small, dark-haired dog worked sheep during the day, while the lighter colored, larger komondor and kuvasz were used to guard the sheep at night. The puliís coat is its distinctive feature and acts as a natural protector. It is dull black with tinges of bronze or gray or gray and white. The dense, woolly undercoat tangles with the profuse topcoat to form long matted cords over the length of the body and the head when not groomed. Intelligent and vigorous, the puli makes an ideal watchdog and companion. It averages 43 cm (17 in) in height and about 14 kg (about 30 lb) in weight.
