Kuvasz Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA: Hungarian Kuvasz
Breed Group: Herding Group Height Male: 28 to 29 1/2 inches (71-75 cm)
Breed Size: Giant Height Female: 26 to 27 1/2 inches (66-70 cm)
Breed Origin: Hungary Weight: 66 to 115 lbs (30-52 kg)
Appearance
The Kuvasz is giant in size, and this is something that needs to be taken into consideration if you have small children in the household. He has a sturdy and robust build, and an intelligent, attentive expression. The Kuvasz has a lustrous, pure white or ivory, coarse double coat. The undercoat is soft and the outercoat longer and can range from almost straight to wavy but not curly. The pigment is black and the darker the better. He has almond shaped dark brown eyes and his wedge shaped head is considered to be his most beautiful characteristic.
 

Temperament
He is an intelligent, independent dog with strong protective instincts. Loyal and devoted to his family, he will face any threat in order to protect them. He is easily trained and said to have great stamina. The Kuvasz is a strong and muscular dog that needs lots of outdoor exercise and is best suited to country living.

The deep bark and protective nature of this breed makes the Kuvasz an effective watchdog. This is an energetic breed, and it is important to ensure that he gets daily walks and also has a secured and safe area in which to play and run. This is not a dog that is suited to enclosed environments and apartment living, nor is he suited to those that cannot establish themselves as the leader. However, with the right owner and the right environment, he can make a loyal, devoted, and loving family pet.

 
History
The Hungarian Kuvasz is among the oldest of all the dog breeds, dating back some 7,000 years. It is believed that he is descended from the Tibetan Mastiff and may be related to the Great Pyrenees and Maremma. He was a favourite guard dog for nobility and was also used for hunting, herding and protecting livestock, which he still does today.
 
Health
The life expectancy of the Kuvasz is around 10-12 years, and there are a number of health issues relating to this breed. Some of the health issues to look out for include thyroid problems, HD and elbow dysplasia, torsion, OCD, sensitivity to chemicals and drugs, and low metabolism. You should ensure that the parents of the Kuvasz puppy have OFA certificates.
