The Hungarian Pumi Club of America, Inc. was formed in 2005 to encourage and promote quality in the breeding of pure-bred Pumik (plural of Pumi), to do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection, to do all in its power to protect and advance the interests of the breed, and to encourage sportsman-like competition at dog shows, companion events, and performance events.
Welcome to the website of the Hungarian Pumi Club of America. Please take some time to peruse these web pages and find out more about this wonderful Hungarian herding breed.
The Pumi is a close relative of the other Hungarian herding breeds - the Puli and the Mudi. While they are all very similar in body type, they most notably vary from each other in coat, ears, and tail. In fact, they are so closely related that occasionally a Pumi will be born in a Puli litter, or a Mudi in a Pumi litter.
This website contains a lot of information on the breed along with the names of breeders and dogs/rescues available. There are also lots of pictures of our national specialty weekends. For further information on the breed, contact any of our members, or go to the list of breeders.
