Special Characteristics

Children: Friendly towards children in most cases.

Other Pets: Should not be left alone with small pets, these dogs will chase and terrorise them.

What to Watch Out For

These dogs have a lot of energy and need to be kept busy. If you chose not to keep them active then they will find something around the house to do for themselves, which could mean them getting a little mischievous and destructive.

Health Risks

Nothing of any major concern to mention here. Just be sure to comb their fur every day to ensure the top loose layer does not drop out and get left all over your furniture at home.

Ideal Owner

The perfect owner would be someone that enjoys to exercise and get out for long walks. This is a lively independant dog that will get on great with an affectionate owner that has the time to devote to them through play and training.
