| The Kuvasz is thought to have been brought into Hungary by Turkish refugees from the Mongols in 1200 A.D. Kuvasz is the Turkish word for protector. King Matyas I was a Turkish king in the late 1400s who did not trust people, only his Kuvasz. The Kuvasz may date back to dogs owned by nomadic Tibetan tribes around 2000 B.C. Kuvasz puppies who are allowed to play too roughly may be prone to develop bone problems later in life.
