An ancient Hungarian livestock dog, the Kuvasz is a fearless, hard-working canine with quite the colorful history. The breed was highly prized among European royalty near the 15th century and beyond. Its history took a dark turn after WWII when the breed was nearly extinct. Luckily, thanks to the work of dedicated breeders, the dog is flourishing once again.
Large and well-muscled, the Kuvasz stands out for its bright white, fluffy fur that can be straight or wavy. Families who welcome this dog into their home will find he is smart, independent and loyal with a clown-ish sense of humor at times.
