Personality and Behavior

  • He's aloof with strangers
  • His sensitive, gentle natured makes him good with kids
  • He gets along well with other dogs

Training

  • He's fairly easy to train. He learns commands at an 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 short 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!).
