Kuvasz Description
  The Kuvasz is a well-proportioned, majestic sheepdog with a very handsome head. It has a well-defined, but not abrupt stop. The muzzle is tapered, but not pointed and it has a black nose. Its lips and the inside of the mouth are black. Its ears are folded and close to the head and its eyes are dark brown and almond-shaped. Its medium-boned body is slightly longer than it is tall. The Kuvasz is muscular, but not bulky. It is light-footed and agile for its size. The lower abdomen is tucked up. Even though it has a white coat, its skin is usually dark. The darker the pigment in the skin, the better. Its medium-length coat is straight or quite wavy, with a thick undercoat. It forms an abundant mane around the neck and chest. Its coat is much fuller in the winter. The hair on the head and feet is short, but on the body and legs it is wavy and can be as much as 4-6 inches long. The back of the legs is feathered and it carries it tail low.
