The Mudi is a herding dog that rivals the Border Collie in intelligence. Its fearlessness also rivals many breeds: At around 25 pounds, this dog will bravely take on much larger predators such as wild boar. Perhaps surprisingly, Mudis have a very even temperament and make great companion dogs who are also guard dogs. They tend to bond mostly with one person but are pleasant with all family members.
