Origin, classification and history

Origin: Hungary.
F.C.I classification: Group 1 - sheepdogs and cattle dogs (excluding Swiss cattle dogs)

It is now proven and confirmed by many experts that this breed is certainly of Asian origin. It is a very ancient dog. Unfortunately there is no documentation on how and when the breed arrived in Hungary. It is assumed that these dogs probably arrived in Hungary following the Magyars, around the end of the 11th century. In recent years this breed has been nicknamed by many young people with the name "rasta dog".

General aspect

Large dog, with a very muscular body and an out of the ordinary strength. The peculiarity of this breed is obviously its singular felted and corded coat, very thick and thick. The color of the coat is always white. Very nice and funny looking dog. His coat, which at first glance would seem very demanding, in reality does not require much human care. The hair of this animal should not even be brushed, since it must keep its typical rusticity intact.


It is a very docile breed if well used. As a puppy he loves to play, while in old age he becomes much more thoughtful. It is an incredibly attached breed to the master. He does not hesitate to throw himself against an intruder; it protects the property in an exemplary way. With a minimum of training he also becomes an excellent defense dog. Another advantage is that it is a very robust breed of health. It would be better to always keep it in the garden or in an outdoor enclosure, where he can make movement. For many hygiene reasons it must be regularly cleaned and washed.
