The May 1st National Purebred Dog Day movement was created by Colorado resident and Puli fancier Suzi Szeremy to celebrate the amazing diversity, heritage, and predictability of these breeds. In 2015, the Colorado General Assembly became the first state to pass a resolution designating a National Purebred Dog Day.

Resolutions commemorating May 1 as National Purebred Dog Day have been introduced in the Illinois House of Representatives and in the U.S. Senate. The Illinois resolution was introduced at the request of the Illinois Federation of Dog Clubs and Owners; the Senate resolution was introduced by Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina.
