Breed Spotlight: Kuvasz

Two little cuties side by side! We all seem to love the cuddly Flocke and Knut, but we obvs don't want to snuggle up to a polar bear! When I saw these pictures comparing the baby polar bears to baby Kuvasz puppies, my heart just about stopped from the cuteness. The sleeping pup at left looks nearly identical to the sleeping cub on the right. Of course, as these animals grow older, the resemblance fades, but that definitely makes neither furry one any less adorable.

The Kuvasz (KOO-vahss) is a member of the AKC working group and can weigh upwards of 100 pounds, compared to polar bears, who can weigh upwards of 1,000. These big dogs are great guardian pooches and are equally protective of their families as they are of your hypothetical sheep and manor. Kuvaszok (the plural of Kuvasz in Hungarian) are also very assertive — they'll definitely need obedience training and socialization to bring out of best of their combo of intelligence, independence, and protectiveness and are generally recommended for owners who have the proper time for this work.

Kuvasz look a lot like my dog a Great Pyrenees...I believe they are somehow related. My dog also looks like a giant polar bear!

OMG! I love huge dogs! And a white dog - a loveable, big lug to go with my two black cats! Holy moly. They'd be like some crime-stopping superhero team. Or three lazy creatures collapsing my bed. I'd name her Astrid.
