Dreadlock Dog – The Pups With The Most Incredible Hairstyle
Puli Dogs Have Dreadlocks?
The Puli Dog Breed is one of the most popular breeds in the world. They are known for their cute, cuddly appearance and they have been featured in many movies such as “Winnie The Pooh” and “Foxtrot”. There are over 100 different varieties of pulu dogs. Some of them have long hair while others have short hair. These variations make up the pulu dog breed. However, there are some common features among all pulu dogs:
They all share these traits:
Their fur is curly or wavy (depending on which variety) Their eyes are black or brown (depending on which variety) They have two front teeth instead of three (depending on which variety) They don’t grow any facial hair.
There are several theories as to why pulu dogs have dreadlocks. One theory says that it’s because they were bred to guard sheep during the time when sheep were considered a valuable commodity. Another theory suggests that it was done so that the pulu could keep their cool under hot desert sun. A third theory claims that it was done so that the pulu would not get too close to humans and thus cause harm if bitten or scratched.
Some believe that the pulu dog has been bred for at least 4000 years. It is believed that they were first bred in what is known as the “Balkans” region of Europe as a flock guard dog. The pulu dog breed was considered to be rare and unusual for many centuries. They became popular during the early 20th century when they were brought up from rural farms into cities and villages. After they were brought up from the farms, people began to crossbreed them.
As a result, we now have the puli dog breed that we see today.
Pulik – The “Buddhist Monks Of Dogs”
Another name for pulu dogs are “Pulik” which translates into “Buddhist monk.” This is because pulu dogs tend to collect and curl their fur into ropes during colder months to keep themselves warm. If a pulu dog was to get wet, then their fur coat would get heavy and as a result they have to shake and dry it out. This shaking and drying motion is very similar to the movement of a Buddhist monk doing deep prayer. As a result, pulu dogs became known by the nickname “Buddhist Monks.”
