Alert, active, and smart, the Mudi is a highly trainable herding dog that can do almost any task well. That includes watchdog duties, hunting, agility and obedience competitions, search and rescue, and much more.

History

The history of the Mudi breed is difficult to trace, as these dogs do not seem to have been bred intentionally, but rather emerged naturally by mixing German Spitz type dogs and other Hungarian shepherd breeds, such as the Puli and Pumi. For some time, Mudis, Pulis, and Pumis were not recognized as separate breeds, but in 1936, Dr. Dezso Fenyes, a breeder and museum director, "discovered" the Mudi in Hungary, and Mudis have been referred to as their own breed ever since. However, shortly after the Mudi breed was designated, the Mudis nearly died out. Many were killed during World War II, and had there been no protectors of the breed, they might have disappeared altogether. Despite a return, Mudi's are still rare to this day, which may be due in part to the popularity of other Hungarian dog breeds overshadowing the Mudi. In fact, there are only a few thousand Mudi's in the world, and most of them still live in Hungary as sheepdogs, although there are several in Finland where they work as rescue dogs in the mountains, and there are a few others scattered in other countries.

Personality

They are eager to please and enthusiastic about any task assigned to them. Mudis are valued by shepherds for their ability to think on their feet and keep herds safe and in line without much supervision. With their high intelligence and alertness, they are also easily trainable and well suited for other tasks such as search and rescue, dog sports, rodent hunting, and more. Mudis don't have much trust in strangers, and they are quick to bark if there is anything unusual, making them excellent watchdogs.
