Puli Dogs: hirsute canines

The Puli, a medium-sized Hungarian herding and livestock guard dog,  may not fit the mainstream aesthetic bias towards dainty, long-haired lapdogs, but  its long, corded coat, which looks like locks (“dreadlocks”), make it virtually waterproof, not to mention closer to Jah.  
yet some Puli spokesdogs insist that wheras rastafari dreadlocks symbolize the Lion of Judah, and among some hindu  Sadhus and Sadhvis locks are an expression of disdain for profane vanity,  most Pulis are not religiously or politically affiliated: they are simply rockin’ their own version of the “natural.”

 

 

Puli's locks are not a race thing; black and white dogs alike sport the curly coils.

its not "a race thing:" black and white alike sport the curly coils.
