The Puli (Pulik plural) is an ancient breed of Hungarian sheep dog, medium-sized, sturdy with a unique, corded coat.
A full adult coat can reach to the ground. Some colors are not permitted in some countries but, in the U.K., black, any shade of gray, apricot (with or without a black mask) and the rarer white are all permissible.
Their body shape is square and, though fine-boned, fairly muscular. The head from the side should be egg-shaped while from the front it will give a rounded appearance.
The tail should curl fairly tightly over the back. Eyes are almond-shaped, dark brown in color, ears are medium-sized, pigment should be black.
Temperament: Intelligent, Obedient, Energetic, Loyal, Agile, Faithful
Health Problems: The Puli is a very hardy breed. All reputable breeders will test their stock for hip dysplasia and will eye test, though there are no major health problems known within this breed.
