Pumi

Pumis have a great sense of smell and have proven themselves as successful ratters. They have also been used to drive large livestock.

About the Pumi

Pumis are cheerful herding dogs that bear a resemblance to terriers. They are excellent family dogs that have no difficulty adapting to life indoors, although they do need a lot of exercise.

All told, they are perfect as companions or sporting dogs. They are agile, bold and intelligent dogs that have boundless energy for fun.
