Lively and animated, Pulis have a tendency to bond with one member of the family. They are friendly, although they will announce visitors at the door and be somewhat reserved with them. They can be stubborn but are quick to learn in training.

History and Origins

The Magyars , one of the many tribes of nomadic Huns that migrated to Eastern Europe, brought Pulis to their native land in the 9th century. These dogs were used to herd and protect their flocks. Over the years they were bred for their ability to work and soon became established in other countries. Today the puli dog breed has adapted to town living as well as working and living in the countryside.
