Pulik is believed to have been brought to Europe by Magyar about a thousand years ago, the same Asian nomads who introduced Vizsla to the West. Pulik grazed large flocks of sheep in the Hungarian plains, and the corded coat protected them from the region's brutal winters. Today the shepherd instinct of the breed remains strong. Pulic would try to keep anything in the herd: birds, other dogs — even children, with a gentle tug on the diaper.
