When we first had Amy, she was mistreated by her previous owner and this had a negative influence on her behavior. Because of this, she was very shy as a dog and had no social skills, we had to teach her this. Due to time, this became a lot better after giving her a lot of love and good care.
Grooming her once a day was really necessary because of her long hair, so pay good attention to this.
When it becomes of guarding the house, don't think they will do this in an extreme way, sure they will bark when somebody rings the bell but won't keep a burglar out.
