The Mudi is an agile and all-purpose Hungarian farm dog. This dog is an extremely intelligent and alert dog who is fast on his feet and is a highly trainable herding dog.

The Mudi can perform almost any task easily, on time, and with a great outcome. The Mudi is a close relative to another breed, also herding breeds, Puli and Pumi. However, they all went separate ways back in the 1930s.

The Mudi is a medium-sized dog with great guarding skills and high-energy levels.

His medium-length, wavy-to-curly coat comes in several colors and is easy to groom, as long as you have the right grooming tools on hand. This breed is always born with floppy ears, but they become erect over time.

This breed will demand to be a part of your life. Expect to have a shadow no matter where you are and how much you want to be alone. The Mudi will adore his family members, and he will do everything in his power to please you.

In return, he will expect active time, outdoor playtime moments, and well-structured training.

Keeping this breed both mentally and physically satisfied is a must if you want a dog who is really a well-behaved canine.

If you’re city-based expect your Mudi to alarm you whenever there is something unusual happening. If he thinks that anything is suspicious, he will inform you about it.
