Beast, Mark Zuckerberg’s Hungarian Puli
Beast is a Hungarian Puli which is a type of Hungarian Sheepdog. According to his Facebook profile Beast was born in Grants Pass, Oregon and now lives in Palo Alto with the Zuckerbergs. Beast also lists his personal interests as, “Herding Things, Cuddling, Loving and Eating”.
Hungarian Pulis are very smart, energetic and playful dogs. They are best known for their long, curly coat resembling dreadlocks. The breed is originated from Hungary where Pulis were used for herding and guarding livestock.
Beast also played a very important role in the couple’s surprise wedding in 2012. They invited their families and friends to celebrate Priscilla’s graduation from medical school. But when she and her dog escort, Beast came into view, guests were delighted that the couple would actually marry. It was a funny and memorable moment as Beast walked the bride down aisle.
