Did you know! This is a breed soon to be banned form Germany!! Can you help? -

Information given by DreamCatcher Kuvasz These are extracts - go read the rest!
"All Kuvasz today are descended from a dozen or so dogs which managed to survive the depredations of the 2nd World War in Hungary. The Kuvasz is a big white livestock guardian (known amongst its devotees as BWD's - Big White Dogs!) with a strong guarding instinct and amazing intelligence.----- The Kuvasz is a guarding breed, not an attack dog! The task of the Kuvasz is to guard and warn off predators, not to fight them! This would be counterproductive - while the 'aggressive' Kuvasz is off being 'butch' and fighting the predator, all the other predators in the neighbourhood are busy slaughtering the flock." Still very rare in UK this breed was used in Hungary to protect flocks of sheep. He is a large and sturdily built, brave but naturally suspicious of strangers. Takes some handling so is not for the novice, but a good worker when mastered. The coat has a medium, course topcoat which is slightly waved and is double.
Colour is pure white.
