I have had this boy for 9 years. He is very loving, loyal and protective. He loves kids of all ages and people of all sorts. He is a big boy weighing in at 120lbs. He can be energetic and loves chasing stick and balls. He also can be lazy and tries to be a lap dog if you let him. He listens good to commands and will sit and lay down. He is very emotionally supportive and knows when you need him.
