Pumis, originating in Hungary, are small to medium-sized herding dogs with a distinctive, curly coat that forms cords as they mature. They have a square-shaped body and a lively, alert expression. They are highly intelligent and quick learners. They excel in various dog sports and activities such as agility, obedience, and herding trials. They are lively and energetic dogs with a strong work ethic. Grey is the most common coat colour but they can be found in varying shades of grey, white, or fawn.
