The modern Kuvasz was developed in Hungary where the breed served as a livestock guardian and as a guard to royalty. Today's AKC breed standard describes the characteristics required of a dog whose function is to protect its flock and drive off predators: large, moderately boned, sturdily built, well muscled, not bulky or lethargic. Firm slimness of body and sufficient angulation are needed for endurance and desired light-footed, free and elastic movement. Coat is white, of medium coarseness and length over the body, with short smooth hair on the head and feet.
