Mudi
History:

Country/Date of Origin: Hungary/1800s

When Hungarian dog fanciers were separating Pulis and Pumis as individual breeds at the end of the 19th Century they discovered the existence of a third type of sheep dog - the Mudi. The Mudi is used as a guard and herding dog and was recognized by the Hungarian Kennel Club in 1936.
