Kuwazzok arrived in Hungary in the Middle Ages, but it was thought that his dynasty goes back to ancient Turkey and Tibet. As livestock guardians, they had the patience to keep a close watch on their herd for days on end, and also the courage to take on wolves or armed dons when called upon. His skills eventually came to the attention of Hungarian nobles. It is said that King Mathasi I, whose court was beset by intrigue and treachery, trusted Kuvasok more than his palace guards.
