Is that a giant mop? Nope, it’s a Komondor! Originating in Hungary, this ancient breed sports an extremely dense coat made up of heavy white cords. This is designed to protect him from extreme weather and animal attacks and helps him blend in with the flocks.
Reserved and serious, the Komondor is a fierce protector of his family. He can be standoff-ish toward strangers and it does take time to earn his trust. Once you do, however, you’ve got a loyal friend. In regard to exercise, the Komondor is a moderately active breed and just needs a good walk each day. Grooming is more complicated. It takes time and effort to keep those curls looking good!
