The amazingly dreadlocked Puli (plural Pulik), although impractical-looking, is in fact bred as a working dog. Pulik work in tandem with the larger, fiercer Komondor, herding and guarding sheep; both breeds have corded coats that are difficult for wolves to penetrate. The Puli was brought to Hungary by the Magyars during the Mongol invasion. Mark Zuckerberg has a Puli called Beast, who has his own Facebook account.
