We love dogs. We’re guessing that you love them, too. As dog lovers we’re excited to hear about the latest breed to be recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC): the Pumi.
The Hungarian herding dog is the AKC’s 190th recognized breed. It will become eligible to compete in the Herding group, the AKC website states, on July 1.

“We’re thrilled to have the Pumi receive full AKC recognition,” AKC Vice President Gina DiNardo said in a statement on the AKC’s website. “This lively, adorable dog makes a wonderful companion for a family willing to provide lots of exercise and mental activity.”
Our next dog might be the Pumi.
