Budapest

GN

Dogs are known for being slobbery, smelly and leaving hair around the house. But this breed cleans up well. Or at least you’d think it would. Strikingly similar to a mop, a Komondor is Hungary’s answer to a sheep dog. And it won’t go anywhere near the water. The image of a herd in Bodony, 130km north of Budapest, shows delighted pup roaming around its native hills. Growing up to three feet tall, their cord coats, which they often shake around wildly, weighs around 30kg - and takes several days to dry. At around nine months the heavy mane begins to grow over their early super-soft, poodle-like fur coats.
