Probably brought to Hungary by invading Magyars from the east, the somewhat aloof and virtually waterproof Puli (“leader” in Hungarian) served as both a herding dog and a retriever. Saved from extinction after World War II by Hungarians living abroad, it remains a uniquelooking companion, admired for its dreadlocks.
