Who am I?
I'm of course Austrian, but the home of my ancestors lies in East Asia.
They say I belong to one of the oldest dog breeds in the world and that I'm still an "original" dog ... if you just let me;
an individualist from head to paw, very attentive and watchful, calm and not easily impressed, when it matters. But when I feel like it, I can be very lively!
I'm incorruptible and a bit suspicious of strangers, unless of course my master wants me to be approached.
I'm intelligent by nature, but sometimes I have to think things over before I obey. People say I'm a bit obstinate, but I would like you to know that I can be convinced ... with good arguments!
I should be socialized from the first day on, and even though I look completely irresistible as a puppy, I should be taught immediately about good and bad - your tone of voice is enough to give me a hint ... of course, I might still make really sure you meant it!
