He is always happy to go outside and play. He enjoys to relax and be rubbed on his back. He’s older but still energetic, he is very protective, and does not like fighting, or people getting rough with each other, even playfully. He’s a very good guard dog at alerting when someone’s around the house. He is cautious of new people and will bark but once accustomed he is loving. He is an alpha dog meaning he could not get along with smaller dogs, or he may try to bully, but once told to stop he does. He does not have an issue with cats.
