Puli Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA: Pulik, Hungarian Puli, Hungarian Water Dog
Breed Group: Toy Group Height Male: 16 to 17½ inches (41-46 cm.)
Breed Size: Medium Height Female: 14½ to 16 inches (36-41 cm)
Breed Origin: Hungary Weight: 20-35 pounds (9-16 kg.)
The Puli is a distinctive looking dog with a square, sturdy build, and is medium in size. He always has an eager expression, and often looks as though he is about to do something that he oughtn't. His coat is profuse and forms into cords, which do require extensive grooming. The color of the coat can vary, and includes charcoal, rust black, black, and white. The weight of the Puli is around 28-35 pounds, and the height of these dogs is around 16-17 inches.

Very intelligent and quick to learn, the Puli is a lively and spirited animal. These dogs have bags of energy and enthusiasm, and are fun loving, sociable, and sweet natured. He is agile, and has plenty of stamina. However, he can be very stubborn, overly confident, and very demanding, which can make training something of a challenge. This breed is best suited to a confident and assertive owner with experience of dog training and ownership. He is also very quick on his feet, and has an inquisitive nature, which means that his play or exercise area should be safe and secure. This shaggy and lovable creature has a cheerful disposition, and enjoys spending time with his owners - he is not for the inactive, however, as he does need regular exercise.

The Puli gets along well with older, gentle children, as well as with other animals. However, beware his herding instincts, as he will try and herd people and pets into groups. He should also not be trusted around smaller creatures that run around, as his instincts will result in him chasing them. When it comes to strangers the Puli can be a wary dog. Early socialization is recommended with this breed in order to promote a stable temperament. His suspicion does make him an effective watchdog. Although these dogs can be a little naughty and mischievous, as well as extremely lively and demanding, they can make wonderful family pets for those with the time and attention to devote to them - as well as the confidence to handle them!

Originating from Hungary, the Puli was used to work alongside its cousin, the Komondor, to round up and herd sheep. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1936.
The Puli is a relatively healthy breed with a life expectancy of around 14-16 years. Some of the health problems to look out for with this breed include cataracts, vWD, HD, and PRA. The parents of the Puli puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
