Know Your Breeds: Meet the Pumi!
Hailing from Hungary, the Pumi joins the pack as the American Kennel Club’s 190th recognized breed


The adorable Pumi is a medium-sized, agile dog from Hungary, bred to gather, drive, and keep livestock under control. A member of the Herding group, the breed is intelligent, quick to learn, and extremely willing to work. These very alert, energetic dogs require daily exercise and mental stimulation and do best with an active family. Their coat, a combination of wavy and curly hair that forms corkscrew curls all over the body, simply needs an occasional bath and a combing every two to three weeks. As AKC Vice President Gina DiNardo notes, “This lively, adorable dog makes a wonderful companion for a family willing to provide lots of exercise and mental activity.”
