Puli Description

The Puli is a lively and extremely intelligent breed.  The breed loves to be a part of family life and particularly resents being ignored or only being included "when convenient."  The dog will live quite happily either as a single dog or with several.  As a family dog, it is ideal, always willing to play with the children and with a fun outlook on life.  The Puli has the added value of acting as an effective warning instrument if strangers approach, as the breed has excellent hearing.  The Puli is a compact, square appearing, well balanced dog of medium size.  Typically a Puli is a lively, acrobatic dog, light, quick, agile and able to change directions instantly. At a collected or contained trot the gait is distinctive, quick-stepping and animated.  He is vigorous, alert and active.  Striking and highly characteristic is the shaggy coat which, combined with his light-footed, distinctive movement, has fitted him for the strenuous work of herding flocks on the plains of Hungary.
