The Mudi is a rare herding dog breed from Hungary.

Appearance

Mudis usually weigh 18 to 29 pounds (8 to 13 kg) and stand 14 to 20 inches (35.5 to 51 cm) high at the withers. The coat is medium long and curly, commonly black, blue merle, ashen, brown, white, or piebald.

Temperament

The Mudi is a versatile farm dog that can hunt, exterminate rodents, and act as a capable herding dog and flock guardian. Although the breed is much less popular than the better-known Puli and Komondor breeds in its native country, owners of the Mudi claim that he is incomparable for his versatile talents and pleasant disposition.
