Komondor Description
  The Komondor is a massive dog with a proud gait. The body is totally covered with an extraordinary felted and corded coat, which is 8 to 11 inches and is always white. Its corded white coat helps the Komondor to blend in well with sheep and also helps protect it from beasts of prey that it might be called upon to fight in his role as flock guardian. The outer coat fuses with the undercoat to form felt that hangs in long cords. It can take up to two years for the cords to form completely and 5 years to reach the desired length. Its head and muzzle are massive and rather short. The eyes are dark brown and the ears are u-shaped and hang down to blend with the rest of the coat. The head is large and it generally has massive bone structure and a hanging tail.
