Personality and Behavior

  • He's independent-natured
  • He's reserved with strangers
  • He's affectionate with his family
  • He has a high prey drive and will chase smaller animals
  • He tends to be aggressive with other dogs

Training

  • He's fairly easy to train. He learns commands at an average rate.

Shedding

  • He sheds profusely! You will find a lot of hair in your home - stuck to your couch, carpets and clothes - and to just about everything else. You will be vacuuming regularly.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His short coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds profusely you may find yourself brushing it a couple of times a week, or even daily, to reduce the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
