Oh my gosh! My first puppy from 8 weeks old. He's almost 4 months now. Very intelligent and always wants to just love us and strangers. Plays well with other dogs. He's seems fearful but I think that's just the puppy stage. I love him so much, I honestly couldn't recommend this breed enough. So loyal and loving. Little stubborn at times but he listens extremely well. Also, very athletic we go on long walks 3 times a day, and he would keep going if possible!
