The Mudi is a rare herding breed of dog from Hungary.




A fawn Mudi

Mudis usually weigh 18 to 29 pounds (8.2 to 13 kg) and stand 15 to 19 inches (38 to 48 cm) high at the withers. The coat is medium wavy or curly, with short hair on the face and legs. [1] The accepted colors are black, ash, brown, white, fawn, and black merle. Mudis have short tails which may be born long and docked short or born naturally short.


The Mudi is a versatile farm dog that can hunt, exterminate rodents, and act as a capable herding dog and flock guardian. Although the breed is much less popular than the better-known Puli and Komondor in its native country, owners of the Mudi claim that it is incomparable for its versatile talents and pleasant disposition.

Exercise and activities

The Mudi is a very active breed. They need to be taken on a daily, long, brisk walk or jog. In addition, they will benefit from a large safe area where they can run free. They need a lot of running and other exercises to be in good condition. They love to play and will excel in all kinds of dog sports such as Frisbee. The Mudi can compete in dog agility trials, obedience, Rally obedience, Schutzhund, showmanship, flyball, tracking, and herding events. Herding instincts and trainability can be measured at noncompetitive herding tests. Mudis that exhibit basic herding instincts can be trained to compete in herding trials.[2]

Health problems

This is a fairly healthy breed, although some cases of hip dysplasia have occurred, but not many.

Living conditions

The Mudi can live in an apartment if it is sufficiently exercised; however, they need space to run and play and would do better if not kept in one. They are moderately active indoors and will do best with at least a large yard. This breed can live outdoors.

Life expectancy

About 13–14 years.


The Mudi is easy to groom. An occasional combing and brushing to remove dead hair is all it needs. This breed is an average shedder.
