Canis Familiaris 'Komondor'

That's the Komondor dog to us!

I'm taking it that this dog just couldn't stand to see me leave and decided it wanted to come with, well it sure did...opps!

Some research into this what I'm nicknaming the mop dog led me to find out that...
  • The Komondor is a large Hungarian guardian dog.
  • It has a long corded coat which is predominately white in colour but can discolour easily from it's surroundings.
  • The Komondor coat is especially useful to protect against very hot and cold climates aswell as evading wild predators as it can easily blend into a flock of sheep and have the element of surprise. It also protects against wolf bites.
  • It is one of the largest common breeds of dog and has a strong body/muscles, long legs and short back. It's tail is carried low.
  • Body length is slightly longer than the height.
  • From it's side the body suggests the shape of a rectangle.
  • The muzzle is just shy of half the length of the head.
  • They are very quick and responsive.
  • It's coat can grow up to approximately 27cm long!
