History

The Puli known in Hungary for at least 1.000 years. Dogs like the Puli were brought to Hungary by the Magyar invaders. Dogs look like Tibetan Terrier, and it is possible that this race is one of its ancestors.

The type of work the dogs did depended on their size and color. Light-colored dogs were most useful at night to be easily seen, while the dark-colored ones worked during the day. Among the white flocks, were easier to see by the pastor.

During the 17th century, the Puli almost lost as a breed due to crossbreeding with sheepdogs from France and Germany. In 1912, a program was started to revive the breed. In 1915 A breed standard was drafted and approved by the (FCI) International Cynological Federation in 1924. The dogs had made their first appearance at a Budapest dog show a year earlier and were divided into three classes.: of work, exposure and dwarf. In 1934 breed standard was revised and dogs were divided by height: large, medium and dwarf. An inscription of 1935 in the Hungarian genealogical book he points out four sizes: large (Police), medium- (work), small and dwarf. Medium size was the most popular.

The coat is made of thick textured hair and a fine undercoat: the right proportion between thick and fine hair determines the "narrow" felting, what is the desired. If there is too much thick hair, the coat is thin. On the other hand, if there is too much fine hair, the cloak will be too pressed.
