    i know nothing about them, but did google up some pics. For me there seems to be quite a variety in appearance, and a good number of the images were of dogs that could be considered "type". For that reason alone i wouldnt have one, i dont want to risk my dog being siezed by some uneducated plod with a doggy chip on his shoulder.

    Well obviously I can't say much about general temperament as I've only ever been in contact with one but Rusty is really friendly. I'm not entirely sure if he's still around as it's been years since I last visited my friend.

    At the time she had two younger siblings, a sister who was 12 and a brother who was 8. I think Rusty was about 4. So they must have had him as a pup with very young children around. I never heard them say anything bad about him. He did very well with everyone in the family including a miniature poodle (I think. He was a tiny toy breed curly haired THING lol.)

    I have heard that sometimes they have dominance issues? I don't know how true that is and whether that's a characteristic of the breed or just a known occurence.

    There is someone near me selling a girl puppy at the mo and OMG! she is gorgeous. They describe them as being very cuddly, people dogs and I certainly want to cuddle her!!
    I think its the same as most breeds that are prone to guarding/DA. With plenty of socialisation and training they are super pets.:)
