Mudi

General Description

The Mudi is a rare herding dog that originated in Hungary. The Mudi is used for general-purpose farm work including sheepherding and vermin control. They are highly active, require daily exercise, and thrive when given a job to do.

General Health

Both hips and elbows are at risk for dysplasia, an inherited disease that causes the joints to develop improperly and results in arthritis. Stiffness in your Mudi's elbows or hips may become a problem for them, especially as they mature.

Character and Temperament

Intelligent, Energetic, Lively, Keen, Alert, Courageous

Exercise

Mudis have high exercise needs and require adequate mental stimulation, or they may get bored. They'll need at least a good walk each day, and it's ideal if they have a chance to run for a while.

Grooming

Weekly brushing is usually all it takes and the coat needs no trimming.

Origin

Also known as the Hungarian Mudi, this breed originated in Hungary. They helped shepherds maintain their flocks, and were often called “driver dog.” Even today, they're used in Hungary for their herding skills and can help shepherds with flocks of up to 500 sheep.
