I happen to watch over two of these dogs for family members. The dogs are brothers, but their personalities are like day and night. One of the dogs is well behaved, listens to commands, all around a pretty calm dog. While the other dog bites, constantly barks, jumps on people, and will not take to training. I can't sum up this dog breed with just a few words. Honestly, I think it depends on the dog itself. This being said, there is a couple things they have in common. Both can be very vocal and energetic. I would say this breed is a very vocal breed based on experience. Any person they see, no matter the situation or if you command them to stop barking, they will bark. I do like this breed, but personally I would not choose it for myself.
