Day 96: Kuvasz

Huh, never heard of this dog before.

They’re an ancient Hungarian breed that is known for having an odorless coat.

They are arguably the oldest identifiable breed, with a skeleton found from the 9th century.

Almost all the Kuvaszok were killed in Hungary during WW2 as German and Soviet armies actively sought them out and killed them due to their reputation for protecting their families.  Some survived though as some Nazi soldiers smuggled the puppies back to Germany.

Do you own a Kuvasz?  Send me their picture!  I’ll give a shout out to you and your dog <3
