KOMONDOR DOG (Canis lupus familiaris)  The Komondor (Hungarian plural komondorok) is a large white-colored Hungarian breed of livestock guardian dog with a long, corded coat. They are sometimes referred to as mop dogs. The Komondor is an old-established  powerful dog breed which has a natural guardian instinct to guard  livestock and other property. The Komondor was mentioned for the first  time in 1544 in a Hungarian codex. The Komondor breed has been declared one of Hungary’s national treasures, to be preserved and protected from modification.
The dreadlock coat must have developed under a dry and extreme  temperature climate as it provides superb protection against cold and  hot weather, but is not too comfortable in wet weather.
The Komondor’s thick coat provides protection against wild  animals, the weather and vegetation. The coat of the dog looks  similar to that of a sheep so it can easily blend into a flock and  camouflage itself — giving it an advantage when predators such as wolves  attack. The coat is the trademark of the breed.
Today the Komondor is once again a fairly common breed in Hungary, its country of origin. Many Komondors were killed during World War II, local stories say that this is because the dog had to be killed before the building where it lived could be captured.
