The Pros: I’m very fast, agile and smart (jogging partner or agility training anyone?). My coat is short, sleek and soft. Easy care, lower shed volume, less dust bunnies. I’ve got the cutest ears that flop up and down as I walk looking as if I’m about to take flight. I’m really sweet around the house, and even though they say I’m only 2-years old, I’m pretty mellow much of the time when things are mellow around the house.
The Cons: I tend to try to “herd” other dogs I play with, licking faces and nipping at heels. While some pups may think this is fun, for others it could be a bit too much. Consensus is I would likely do best either as an “only dog” or possibly with a sibling who’s very laid-back and understanding about these things. Cats may not be safe in my vicinity either as, though I’ve not met an indoor one, the outdoor ones do get me excited for the chase (no malicious intent, just natural instincts setting in).
I love going on walks. I am strong. I need to have a harness on when you take me on walks because I am an assertive sniffer, and I do pull pretty hard when I want to check out a squirrel. It’ll be important for my adoptive parents to be strong when it comes to walking me!
