Thread: Hi everyone!

    Hi everyone!

    Hi everyone, I am new here. As you may have guessed by my username, the name is Dan. When I lived at home with my parents we had an awesome Norwegian elk-hound named Thor. I miss him a lot. However, I just graduated college with a degree in economics and now live in town.

    I have been looking at possible getting a puli (dreadlock dog). Have any of you had experience with this breed before?

    Anyway, it is great to be here. I look forward to meeting many of you. Cheers!

    Wellcome to Pet talk Dan. What exactly is a puli or dreadlock dog?.

    Welcome Dan!
    Puli is a Hungarian breed doggy that has long dreadlock-like curls. Wonder how the grooming would go? Don't know about breed or dogs in particular but looked it up to see for myself.

    Pulis can be a lot of maintenance as they are growing, and the cords forming, but then they are pretty much "wash and go" from what I understand! When you are ready, check pet finder.com first - you never know what's out there in rescue waiting for a home! I know some people keep their puli in a short "puppy cut" for ease ... but it is definitely up to the human, they are busy, happy dogs, but they are herders, so be prepared for a lot of exercise and keeping it entertained!

    And welcome to Pet Talk! I am sure Thor taught you how to be a good dog person!
