A large, Hungarian shepherding breed, this white dog is striking. They’re known to be devoted, gentle, and vigilant, but are also a one-family dog. When they bond, it’s for life. Suspicious of strangers, they can be difficult to socialize and train. Early exposure to many people and noises is recommended and a firm, patient training method is essential.
