The Mudi is a very rare herding dog breed from Hungary. He usually weighs 18 to 29 pounds (8 to 13 kg) and stands 14 to 20 inches (35.5 to 51 cm) high. The coat is medium long and curly, commonly black, blue merle, ashen, brown, white, or piebald in colour. The Mudi is a versatile farm dog that can hunt, exterminate rodents, and act as a very capable herding dog and flock guardian. Although the breed is much less popular than the better-known Puli and Komondor breeds in its native country, owners of the Mudi claim that he is incomparable for his versatile talents and pleasant disposition.
Recognised by the FCI (Group 1, Breed 238).
