Loving, sweet, cheerful and very dependent on their owners. They love everyone, every animal, and so even the thief is welcome at home (they are not guard dogs at all).
They don't bark much and manage to be calm and agitated in the right situations.
They love to please others and so they love to work. They are excellent assistance dogs ((with children, old people or people with needs).
They are intelligent and very adaptable to the lifestyle of their owners. If their owner stays in the couch all day, they will stay in the couch calm, but if the owner decides to go jogging they will follow him with all the pleasure and energy.
