Pumi Information

The Pumi is a lively, medium-sized herding dog with Terrier characteristics. Its Terrier character is most obvious in its head, which has an elongated foreface and semi-prick ears. It is a square breed, with a good amount of leg and a medium length, wavy coat that forms curls. The Pumi comes in a variety of solid colors.

The Pumi is a bold, active dog with a rather restless temperament. He can be a little suspicious towards strangers. The breed is constantly on the alert and looking for action, and can be rather noisy. Shyness is untypical of the breed.
