VetStreet.com: 14 Dog Breeds You've Never Heard Of (but Will Soon)

Pumi

The energetic Pumi is a Hungarian herding breed who loves to work. From competing in agility competitions to simply lounging on the couch, this dog is down to do whatever you want to do. The Pumi grows to between 22 and 30 lbs., and requires daily exercise, like jogging, hiking or chasing tennis balls. You can care for his beautiful corkscrewed coat at home with biweekly combing, but remember not to blow-dry his gorgeous locks — air-drying will do the trick. Pumik (plural for Pumi) are typically reserved around strangers, but warm up quickly. They get along well with children and other pets if raised with them. The breed also has a tendency to herd ducks, cats, other dogs and, if you can believe it, people.
