  • He'll follow you from room-to-room like a shadow
  • He loves to burrow deep into blanks and take a nap (watch you don't squash him when you sit down!)
  • He's utterly ferocious! He barks up a storm at anything that rubs him the wrong way
  • He's self-important and confident
  • His "clannish" nature means he prefers to have companions of the same breed
  • He's one of the best watchdogs! He's highly alert and barks ferociously at the presence of stranger on his territory
  • He will do fine with gentle and respectful children, but when frightened he has a tendency to bite


  • He's not easy to train. You will need patience as he is slower than most to learn obedience commands.


  • He sheds quite a bit of hair. You'll find some hair stuck to your clothes, couch and carpets.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His medium-length coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
