What is a Komondor known for? The Komondor is known for its trademark coat. It is a double-coated breed with a dense, soft, woolly undercoat and an overcoat made up of strong, tassel-like cords that form naturally from coarse, wavy, or curly hair.
Can a Komondor see? Do they see? No, the hair isn’t a burden on the breed and yes, they do see, very well even.
Why did Komondor almost go extinct? World War II and the Cold War put an end to importing the breed from Hungary, thus the breed suffered and dwindled to the point of near extinction; however, breeders from the United States reconnected with Hungary in 1962 and were able to bring the breed back to life.
How smart is a Komondor? They’re intelligent, independent, and fiercely protective, willing to rise to the challenge of defending home and family. Komondor are wary of strangers and can be aggressive to other dogs. These traits, plus their large size, make them a bad match for first-time or timid owners.
