Terry & Stephanie Horan  We began our interest in dogs in the late 60's, with a German Shepherd Dog and an Old English Sheepdog. We did a little obedience with the Shepherd, and a little conformation with the OES, and got hooked on the world of dogs. We got our first Puli "Pitchi" in 1969, and once he came into our lives we knew this was the breed for us. We loved the unique coat, the bounce and energy, the lively intelligence. Pitchi was from the first litter born in England. He was not a top quality Puli but he was sound and had a lovely temperament. We had a lot of fun showing him at all kinds of shows, including Crufts, and he did a nice amount of winning at a time when Pulis were a rare breed and did not have championship status in Great Britain. In 1970 we imported three Pulis from Hungary, Joli, Csibi and Panna, and from these three dogs have descended all the Immerzu Pulis to date. Click on their names to learn more about them. In 1974 we emigrated to Canada, locating in the Calgary area of southern Alberta. We brought five Pulis with us, and began to breed and show them in Canada and in the U.S.A. Our two children, son Ben and daughter Tamzin, were born here. They both became involved with the dogs, especially Tamzin, who competed in Junior Handling, winning a number of awards, and also handled a variety of dogs for other owners. She became interested in Rhodesian Ridgebacks, breeding and showing them with considerable success under her kennel name of Invictus, and continued her Puli ownership, achieving many awards with her Puli Esme. We show our dogs in conformation and have done some obedience and herding in past. We are Canada's top-winning Puli kennel - our dogs have achieved Best in Show, Reserve Best in Show, and numerous group wins and placements in the conformation ring, as well as High in Class and High in Trial awards in obedience. Pulis we have bred have done well in many performance events with their owners. We are very proud that dogs from our kennel have become the foundation stock of several other Puli breeders, and have been incorporated into the bloodlines of many of North America's top winning Puli kennels. We have almost 70 Immerzu champions finished in Canada, and over 20 obedience titles won so far. In the U.S.A. Immerzu Pulis have finished almost 70 championships, and over 20 obedience titles. In both countries our dogs have also been certified in temperament tests and as Canine Good Citizens, and have won numerous agility titles. Several of our Pulis have won foreign championships, including international championships. Click here to learn more about some of the Pulis we have owned and loved. Stephanie is a writer in her spare time, and has had many articles on dogs published in dog magazines all over the world, and has won writing awards.  She has also edited the Canadian national club's newsletter for many years. Terry and Stephanie combined forces to write a book on grooming the Puli entitled Striking the Right Cord: A Complete Guide to Grooming the Puli, which was first published in 1996 and has been revised and reprinted twice. Click on the title to read all about it. Both Terry and Stephanie have held a variety of positions on the Boards of the Hungarian Puli Club of Great Britain, and Puli Canada, the national club. We are also members of the Puli Club of America, having joined in 1970. Our ideal Puli - the one that we aim for in our breeding program - is a lively and cheerful dog with a stable temperament and a traffic-stopping coat, squarely built with a tail carriage tight over the back. He also has the correct head, with one-third/two-thirds muzzle to backskull proportions, full dentition and the blackest of pigment. He moves with soundness, straightness, and drive, yet retains that indefinable bounce so typical of the Puli. Most of our Pulis are black, and in recent years we have had a few masked fawn puppies, some of whom have gradually turned grey. We breed at least one, and sometimes two litters a year, and puppies are occasionally available for showing, performance events, or as a much-loved companion - click here for current breeding plans and puppy availability. All of our breeding stock are checked for hip dysplasia and luxating patellas, and also for hereditary eye diseases. We aim for a Puli sound in both mind and body, and it is a measure of the success of our breeding program that we sell a second and even a third puppy to people who bought one from us many years earlier; when their original dog enters its senior years or has died after a long and happy life, nothing will fill the lives of the owners but another Puli from us. We presently live on the Sunrise Trail overlooking Wallace Harbour and the Northumberland Strait, on the beautiful North shore of Nova Scotia.
