Description: The Puli (plural Pulik) is a compact, squarely appearing, well balanced dog of medium size. Their most prominent feature is their corded fur, making them the perfect mascot for the mop. White Pulik look just like a corded mop, with their cords spilling out and over their head and body. They can come in colors of apricot, white, black or rusted black. As puppies, the fur is simply very curly or wavy, and when they get older their fur begins to cord. Pulik are smaller than the Komondor, but have worked alongside them for years. The Hungarian Puli is vigorous, alert, loving, fun and funny. Despite its appearance, the Puli is no pushover and if given the chance will put any self-respecting human to shame. Used successfully as police dogs in Hungary, they make great companions. They are affectionate, loving and playful with their owners and with friends. They are wary of strangers however, and do make excellent watch and guard dogs. Pulik enjoy being vocal, and a new owner will soon learn this shortly after their adoption of this breed. Puppies are highly intelligent and quick to learn. Pulik have been known to be very intelligent, excellent problem solvers, and very good at what they were bred for, herding. They can be rather independent and are not the most obedient dogs, as they get bored if repetition is used in the training. The Puli is a great dog for an intelligent, active owner seeking an intelligent, active friend.
