My favorite description of Kuvasz APPEARANCE - re-printed for 2019


I love this quote from Dr. Buzády's book. And I feel the same way myself (about the Kuvasz; I'm not familiar with the other breeds)!

The Kuvasz:

Breeders and owners treat their dogs as if they were their own children. There are always a couple of characteristics of the dogs in which they like to take special pride.

Long tales are told of the mischievousness or emotional instability of the Puli, while the attentiveness and enthusiasm for work of the Vizsla are spoken of with pleasure.

The Pumi’s crazy behavior or the way in which the mighty Komondor can be gentle as a lamb ... the list could grow.

Owners of the Kuvasz, however, are convinced that theirs is the most beautiful dog in the world – and not without reason.  The handsome animal never fails to give passers-by in the street something to stare at, and there is always a crowd around it at a show.
