New dog breed you will fall in love with

New dog breed you will fall in love with, officially recognised as the 190th breed of dog by the American Kennel Club (AKC) – and it’s called a Pumi.

Originally used for herding in Hungary, breeders have been tirelessly working in the US over the past two decades to get the Pumi noticed.

The Pumi (pronounced poom-ee) is described as small size and high energy, with an energetic, lively, and ready to work personality to match. Their coats are curly and thick, and of medium length, short of being real life teddy bears, the Pumi comes up high in appearance with their high set ears with tips pointing down. They are described as being a healthy breed with a life expectancy of up to 14 years, and have been known to live up to 19.

Although originally used as a herding dog, and often referred to as the ‘Hungarian herding terrier’, there is no terrier blood in the breed, it just proposes that the breed has terrier like characteristics, making them fantastic for other purposes such as obedience, dog agilisty, dog dancing, and able to be trained for detection and other purposes such as search and rescue.
