They can become aggressive if not taken care of properly, but that’s true with any breed. Cruel practices such as leaving the dog alone chained outside all its life, hurting it and not feeding him enough can make him mean. Obviously.

These guys are active and love to move! Make sure they get lots of exercise.

They are good with kids, especially if they’re raised together.
