Our Puli will capture your heart!
They are NOT dogs, they are PULIK!
They are active, playful, smart and
have the real "Puli personality" that is unmatched by
any other breed. Not kidding! Check with any Puli owner, they will agree.
The Puli is not the fluffy type. They have nice long thread-locks that gives them that unique look. Yeah, like in that
beer commercial. ;-)
If you're looking for a smart and cheerful companion, and like attention when walking your dog, with the Puli you'll get it for sure! People will turn their heads after your dog. - OOPS, It's not a dog, it's a PULI! - They are very good with other animals, kids and very people oriented, loyal dogs. Always in a good mood.
Originally they are shepherd dogs.
Their coat NATURALLY FORMS CORDS, so normally you DO NOT need to sit and do their hair. Believe it or not, they do not shed, and do not smell either. (If they do, you better check into what's causing it, ASAP!) Although if you plan to take them to the beach often, you better keep their hair short, otherwise it could be a mess. When we give them a bath, we use baby shampoo, which gentle enough not to dry their skin, then apply conditioner.
Pulies need to have their daily exercise. Love spending time outside and run around. Most puli I know, love playing ball. They are obedient, naturally listen to you, and very easily trained.

The Puli (pronounced poo lee) is a unique, ancient dog that was
bred to be a herder of sheep. Their coat is one feature that makes
them so unique. It is long, coarse, thick, wavy, shaggy and naturally
forms cords. These cords reach to the ground. This corded coat
makes them look similar to the Komondor. Their hair forms
cords naturally, they do not need a lot of grooming care. You might want to hand separate the cords in case they are
forming one large knot! Drying the coat after bathing takes about
4 hours or so. You can also clip the coat and keep it short. The Puli's coat offers great
protection from weather as well as attacks from predators. The
undercoat is dense and wooly.
Some colors: black, rusty black, gray. They do
Training: early socialization, consistent and
Exercise: needs to have daily exercise. Loves
spending time outside; becomes restless if not allowed to run
about. Enjoys swimming - be sure to inspect and clean ears on
a regular basis to keep clear of infection.
Loyal to the family; sensitive. Good with kids. The Puli is an
excellent watch dog. Good with pets if raised with them from puppyhood,
not aggressive toward other dogs; it is recommended that the Puli
be socialized around other dogs at a young age.
Puli puppies rely on their mother's milk to provide protective antibodies. Approximately two weeks after weaning, their natural immunity begins to diminish; therefore, it is important to bring your puppy to the veterinarian for a check up and vaccination schedule. Vaccines stimulate puppies into producing their own antibodies; so all puppies must be vaccinated in order to protect them from certain diseases. Common diseases include distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, parvovirus, rabies, and corona virus. Your veterinarian should be notified if you notice a loss in your puppy's appetite, any vomiting or diarrhea, or persistent coughing.
Parasites can also pose a problem for puppies; they can be either internal or external. Most of the internal parasites live in the puppy's intestine. Their eggs are usually transmitted through the soil from other infected feces. Some indications of internal parasites include vomiting, diarrhea, blood in the stool, poor appetite, lethargy, or weight loss. Thin spaghetti-like or short rice-like worms are also indications of internal parasites. A veterinarian can examine a sample of the puppy's feces to detect parasites.
External parasites such as fleas, lice, and ticks, can cause skin damage and can infect a puppy with disease. Lice are small insects that cling to the dog; infection is usually made by contact with other animals or an infected environment. Fleas feed on the puppy's blood and cause itching. Once a flea is swallowed, it can cause tapeworms. Ticks can transmit Rocky Mountain spotted fever as well as lyme disease. Ear mites can also pose a problem for your puppy; signs include scratching of the ears, shaking of the head, or dark earwax. It is best to seek the advice of your veterinarian to treat parasites, both internal and external.
