Pumi Becomes American Kennel Club’s 190th Breed

June 23, 2016

The American Kennel Club announced that the Pumi has received full recognition as the organization’s 190th breed.

“We’re thrilled to have the Pumi receive full AKC recognition,” said AKC vice president Gina DiNardo.  “This lively, adorable dog makes a wonderful companion for a family willing to provide lots of exercise and mental activity.  If a dog lover is interested in the Pumi, or any other AKC breed, visiting www.akc.org is a great way to learn more about the breed and determine if it’s a fit for their lifestyle.”

Joining the Herding group, the Pumi is a medium-sized, agile dog from Hungary.  It was bred to gather, drive, and keep livestock under control.

The breed is intelligent, a quick learner and extremely willing to work.  Pumis do best with active families because they are very alert, energetic dogs that require daily exercise and mental stimulation.

The Pumi becomes eligible to compete in the Herding group on July 1, 2016.
