Multi Champion Babuschka Fehér Csavargo, most winning female Kuvasz in the world.
The Kuvasz is used as a watch and guard dog for houses, property and other valuables, as well as for people. He also has been used as a hunting and scenting dog.
BRIEF HISTORICAL SUMMARY
The Kuvasz is a long established, ancient Hungary Shepherd Dog. His ancestors came into the Carphation basin at the time of occupation by the Magyars. These dogs were needed to watch and gard their flocks against beasts of prey and thieves. Because of his hunting instinct the Kuvasz was the preferred hunting dog at the time of King Matthias Corvinus. Since the decline in stock herding, he has much less been used for his original duties and he has settled in villages and later even in towns.
The dogs of this breed are strong and large and carry a dense, wavy, white coat. Their pleasing appearance radiates nobility and strength. The individual body parts fit together harmoniously, the limbs being neither too short nor too long. The bone structure is strong but not coarse. The strong muscles are lean, the joints show clear outlines. Seen from the side, the body forms a prone rectangle, almost a square. Well muscled he shows a strong build, a lively temperament and great agility. His appearance embodies a tireless working ability.
