Breed of the Month
- Mudi-

Earlier this month the American Kennel Club added 2 new dog breeds, the Hungarian Mudi and the Russian Toy. We are going to take a moment and introduce to you the Hungarian Mudi.

 

  • Temperament:         Loyal, Intelligent, Active

  • Group:                                    Herding

  • Height:                       15-18.5 inches

  • Weight:                      18-29 pounds

  • Life Expectancy:       12-14 years

 

The Mudi is an extremely versatile, intelligent, alert, agile, all-purpose Hungarian farm dog. His courage is useful for working the most stubborn livestock. The breed is a loyal protector of property and family members without being overly aggressive.

The Mudi (pronounced "moodie") is a medium-sized herding dog from Hungary which has been in existence since the 19th century. It is said the Mudi evolved naturally from crosses of the Puli, Pumi and German Spitz breeds. Today, the Mudi, though very rare, is seen as an active, intelligent, biddable working breed. It is estimated there are no more than a few thousand Mudi worldwide, with the greatest numbers being in Hungary, followed by Finland, and then even scarcer throughout Europe, the U.S, and Canada. The Mudi excels at agility, obedience, and flyball, as well as other dog sports. He is a true working breed and shines when herding both cattle and sheep, and has found fame as a search and rescue dog in both Finland and the U.S.
