BRIEF HISTORICAL SUMMARY
The Puli is a Hungarian herding breed of Asiatic origin. His original ancestors most probably
came to the Carpathian Basin with the migrating ancient Magyars, who lived as nomads on stock-breeding.
Dog of medium size with strong constitution, square build and fine, but not too light bones. The somewhat lean body is well muscled all over. The construction of the
individual body parts is difficult to judge, as the whole body is covered by a strongly developed coat, tending to form curls and cords. It is therefore useful to touch the dog when judging. The coat on the head is so profuse that the head appears round and the eyes are almost covered. The profusely coated tail, curled forward over the back, gives the appearance of the topline rising slightly towards the rear.
