The Pumi, or Hungarian Shepherd, is a medium-sized terrier-like dog with a curly coat. It originated in Hungary in the early 18th century by crossing Pulis with German and French herding dogs. The FCI recognized the breed in the 1920's. Originally used to drive cattle and as a ratter and hunter of small game, the Pumi today is usually a family companion and guardian.
