  • He's peaceful with strangers
  • He's affectionate with everyone in the family
  • He loves to be at your side and doesn't like being alone for long periods of time

  • He's initially shy around strangers but warms up to them
  • He loves playing, romping, and having fun

Training

  • He's easy to train because he learns commands at an above average rate.

Shedding

  • 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!).
