Mop Dog Named Hanga Goes Viral For Her Swimming Video And She’s Lucky Her Owner Is A Pet Groomer



Gintarė Bertauskienė from Kaunas, Lithuania had been dreaming about owning a Komondor for most of her life. When she was little, Gintarė got a postcard featuring one of these majestic dogs and has kept it ever since. However, the time came and Gintarė made her dream come true. Now, she’s a proud owner of Hanga, one of the two mop dogs in the country.

The first thing people notice when they see Hanga is her unusual fur. Only a handful of dog breeds has natural dreadlocks, and the Komondor is one of them. Well, the proper terms for dog dreadlocks are cords, flocks, and mats, but you get the idea. Their long and thick coat requires a lot of care, but Hanga is lucky — her human, Gintarė, is a pet groomer!

Hanga became an internet sensation when LADbible shared a video of the pup swimming in a lake. The clip has received over 19 million views, and, long story short, Gintarė even made some money off of it which she used to pay for Hanga’s surgery.

Hanga receives a lot of attention on the streets as well. Passers-by are constantly asking Gintarė if they can take a picture of her unique dog. “Sometimes we make our trips to the city in the evening just to avoid all the attention,” the woman told Kas Vyksta. “Hanga is a very protective dog and is wary of strangers. If there are too many of them, she might get tensed.”

Considering that the Komondor is built for livestock guarding, this is completely understandable. Its temperament is like that of most livestock dogs; it is calm and collected when things are normal, but if the dog senses trouble, it will fearlessly defend the herd. The Komondor was bred to make decisions on its own and act independently.

If you’re thinking about getting a Komondor, keep in mind that because of its size, power, speed, and temperament, a lack of obedience training can result in dangerous situations. Typically, Komondors are good at learning things, especially if they start early (ideally, between 4–8 months).
