All dogs bark. Is that true? Well no. Not all dogs bark, but most do.
Ungarn, um 1900
The Mudi has a long head with a pointed nose. Usually its tail is docked, but it is not unusual for the puppies to be born without a tail. The Hungarian herdsman's dogs were all classified together until the 1930's when Dr Dezso Fenyesi separated the Mudi from the Puli and Pumi.
This rural breed does not appear to be the result of planned breeding; it was formed spontaneously and is only about one hundred years old. It is rare, even in its country of origin, Hungary. Without the intervention of dedicated breeders, it would be in danger of extinction.
Black, white, red, brown, gray, bread-pale, and fallow. There is also a very rare color (blue-merle) which is dark or light gray and mixed with a black, spotted, striped, stained, marbly color. (The potential coat colors are actually limitless with this breed.)
The dense, wavy coat is about 2 inches (5 cm.) long with glossy hair that forms tufts. It is easy to groom. An occasional combing and brushing to remove dead hair is all it needs. This breed is an average shedder.
This is a fairly healthy breed, although some cases of hip dysplasia have occurred, but not many. However, to make sure that you get a healthy puppy, you should buy a puppy from a reputable Mudi breeder.
