The Pumi is thought to have traveled from Asia to Hungary more than 1000 years ago. It has been determined, through genetic testing, that the Pumi has both the Spitz and Briard in their lineage. The Pumi were especially cherished for their herding ability in the mountains of western Hungary. The Pumi were nearly extinct following the ravages and lack of food during WWll; some Pumi were even shot by invading soldiers. The whimsical Pumi with his endearing curls is a beloved pet for families across Europe and the United States today. The Pumi is lively, bold and generally ready for action yet can be somewhat leary of strangers.

Left to their own resources, the Pumi most likely survived on a high protein diet of hunting spoils and barn vermin. The Pumi is often a staple in Hungarian circuses stealing the show with their dancing agility. the clever Pumi is often used for search and rescue missions as well as detection. The Pumi now receive high levels of recognition in professional herding events. Known in some circles in Hungary as the clown dog, their herding instinct is so strong, they can often be seen attempting to herd people. Most Pumi today need only venture as far as the family kitchen to find a full meal waiting. Given their reduced activity levels compared to their ancestors, the Pumi needs very controlled dog food portions to ensure they maintain healthy weight levels.
