    The King of the Terriers – a name he earns as the largest of the Terrier breeds, originated in Yorkshire, when a group of breed enthusiasts met to 'show' their terriers at Airedale Show – in the area around Ilkley. The breed was often known as the Waterside Terrier because of their working of the riverbanks to keep down vermin.

    The Pumi is an active dog, combining the biddability and intelligence of the herding dog along with the alertness and activity of a terrier. Because they are intelligent, they need daily work to do, whether it’s herding, obedience, flyball, jogging, or chasing tennis balls.
