Description: The Pumi is a small, thickly-furred breed that came straight from Puli stock. They can come in colors of white, black, grey, or rusted black. They have very curly fur that is similar to the fur of a Puli puppy, but it never forms into cords. The Pumi is vigorous, alert, loving, fun and funny - much like their cousins. They are very energetic, and the actual standard used to describe the breed is "unable to keep quiet". Pumi enjoy being vocal, and a new owner will learn this shortly after their adoption of the breed. They are wary of strangers however, and do make excellent watch and guard dogs. They are daring, excited, loud-mouthed and spirited. Acting much like a terrier, the Pumi enjoys being active. Pumi have been known to be very intelligent, excellent problem solvers, and very good at what they were bred for, herding.
