The Pumi is a medium-small terrier type of sheep dog from Hungary. Most Pumis are gray, but born black. The breed's trademark is its ears, which are always alert and very lively. The Pumi is a lively, active and intelligent breed that is easy to train, but barks easily. Pumis are very protective of their families, and often slightly reserved toward strangers, so socialization must begin at early age.
The breed has a life expectancy of 12-14 years.
