The Hungarian Kuvasz is a large, sturdily built dog of some power and nobility. Descended from the Arabian wolf, the Kuvasz may be the most ancient of all dog breeds and is considered to be the ancestor of the Tibetan Mastiff. Archaeological evidence places a dog of Kuvasz appearance in what is today North Iraq in 6600 BC, although the Kuvasz is thought to have existed as early as 9000 BC.

Use as a watch dog and for protection. Its good scent capability meant it had uses in hunting wolves and wild boar. Although these dogs are bold, courageous and fearless, they devoted to their owners. They can be suspicious of strangers.
