This large mountain dog, taken to Hungary by Turkish nomads, can be ferocious. The name derives from the Turkish word kavas, meaning “armed guard”. If raised from puppyhood in the home and socialized to other dogs and people, the Hungarian Kuvasz can make a good, although potentially formidable companion.
