So you’re looking to adopt an Kuvasz, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Imposing, impressive, majestic, massive, mighty—pick the adjective you like best, they all apply to the Kuvasz (pronounced KOO-vahz; the plural is Kuvaszok, pronounced KOO-vah-sock). This snow-white livestock guardian of luxuriant coat can stand as high as 30 inches at the shoulder, and weigh between 70 and 110 pounds. Despite their size and strength, Kuvs are quick-moving, nimble-footed protectors when meeting a threat. The breed’s fans say that the elegantly proportioned head “is considered to be the most beautiful part of the Kuvasz.” The snow-white Kuvasz is Hungary’s majestic guardian of flocks and companion of kings. A working dog of impressive size and strength, the imposing and thickly coated Kuvasz is a beautiful, smart, profoundly loyal, but challenging breed.”
An Kuvasz typically ranges from 66.04cm to 76.2cm in height, and weighs from 31.751465900000003kg to 52.163122550000004kg.
