This dog gets on well with other dogs. Visits by strangers will be announced but that is all. They are friendly with everyone. Animals which were already present in the household will be unquestionably accepted and there will be no problems worth mentioning in their attitude to children-although they will not accept everything a child might do to it.
The very short coat is dense, protecting the soft undercoat. Every color is permitted but the ideal colour is white with yellow or reddish brown patches.
Little grooming is needed for the coat of this breed. An occasional brushing, particularly during moulting, is sufficient to keep it good condition.
The very individual nature of this dog means that its handler needs considerable patience, power of persuasion, and an insight into the character of the dog to be able to achieve the most basic level of training.
