Breed of the Month

- Pumi-

  • Temperament: Energetic, Lively, Ready to Work

  • AKC Breed Popularity: Ranks 151 of 197

  • Height: 16-18.5 inches (male), 15-17.5 inches (female)

  • Weight: 27-29 pounds (male), 22-24 pounds (female)

  • Life Expectancy: 12-13 years

  • Group: Herding Group


A compact, nimble-footed herder of Hungarian origin, the Pumi is easily recognized by a corkscrew-curled coat, two-thirds erect ears, and distinctive whimsical expression. The breed is famed for its intelligence, agility, and boldness.

The Pumi (POO-mee; plural Pumik) was conceived as a compact, quick, and fearless sheepherder capable of moving flocks on the narrow roads connecting the pastures of western Hungary. At a glance, it might be hard to believe that this cuddly charmer was born to do such tough work. With his coat of corkscrew curls, circular tail, expressive ears, and distinctively whimsical look, the Pumi is all kinds of cute. But beneath the curls is a lean, deep-chested herder with a seemingly endless capacity for work and play.
