The Pumi is a medium-sized, sturdy sheepdog. It is active and energetic. This dog is a typical drover, with a burning personality and an alert disposition. As a working dog it serves many functions, such as herding cattle, exterminating vermin, and guarding the farm.

It was developed to drive cattle; it is daring, mouthy and high-spirited. Its character makes this breed a fine watchdog in remote areas. It also makes a successful guard dog and hunting dog.


Black, all shades of gray, and reddish brown, but always one solid color. White occurs, but is not favored by breeders.

An occasional combing and brushing will keep it looking nice. Remove excess hair from inside the ears. Showing the dog requires special grooming.
