With its constant vigilance and keen eye for order, this handsome working dog is a guardian to the core.
Kuvasz owners are convinced that their breed is the most beautiful in the world, and who could argue with them? A dog of imposing size and pure white coat, with deep brown eyes set in a head of nobility and dignity, the Kuvasz is a most handsome dog. Although they have a challenging personality, they also have a nurturing, protective nature, an outrageous sense of humor, and breathtaking natural beauty.
The Kuvasz (pronounced "Koo-voss;" the plural form is Kuvaszok) belongs to the family of ancient livestock guard dogs of Eurasia. These large white dogs include the Great Pyrenees, the Italian Maremma, the Turkish Akbash, and the Polish Tatra Sheepdog. Because wolves and thieves came at night, the shepherd's dog needed to be white so that it could be distinguished quickly.
