The coat of the Mudi is richer in pigment than that of other breeds. Hairless surfaces are black, pads and nails slate grey.
The breed seems to have formed spontaneously in Hungary between the 19th and 20th centuries, and then to have been perpetuated by the shepherds who immediately appreciated it for its natural instinct to protect the flocks.
He is a docile and easy to train dog. Naturally inclined to eliminate vermin, the Mudi can be used to hunt wild boar. He is awake and also proves suitable for the job of guard dog. It is also widespread as a pet, including thanks to its short coat, which is particularly appreciated in apartments.
