History and Origins
Country of Origin: Hungary
Known in their native homeland of Hungary for over a thousand years, the Komondor is a livestock guardian, bred to live with the flock and protect them from theft and predation. The corded coat would keep them warm and dry no matter the weather and provides a thick body armour effective against the fiercest of predators including wolves. Thought to have arrived in Hungary with the nomadic Magyars and possibly descended from the Ovtcharka, another livestock guardian breed from the Caucasian regions of Russia.
