History

  • He became a fashionable pet of rich European families

Personality and Behavior

  • He's brave, loyal, feisty, bold and inquisitive
  • He's energetic; constantly moving around the home to investigate anything that grabs his attention
  • He doesn't like to be left home alone; he thrives on your attention, love and companionship
  • He shows his affection by cuddling and snuggling with you
  • He can be very aggressive with other dogs and he can't back it up so you need to watch him
  • He's one of the best watchdogs: quick to announce the presence of a stranger on his property

Training

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

Shedding

  • He sheds virtually no hair. You'll be hard-pressed to find a hair in your home! (Good for clean-freaks.)

Grooming / Maintenance

  • Option 1: Clip his coat short every few months and then it only needs to be brushed occasionally.
  • Option 2: Trim his long coat every 6 weeks and then brush it daily to keep it mat and tangle free.
