This toy breed is playful and alert, but need to be allowed to
socialize as puppies as they can be very wary of new faces. They enjoy
the company of their own breed, but can be left with other pets if they
are broken in to be with them gently. They can be left with children
who are well behaved. They can be stubborn and need firm handling.
Inquisitive as a breed, they need to be exercised regularly.
They can be kept in apartments but would need a few regular walks as
they are very spirited pets. They have to be handled with patience and
are eager to learn and are easy to train, but need consistency in their
training. A low maintenance breed because of their short hair, an
occasional brushing will do and they can be wiped with a wet cloth to
remove any excess hair which is dropping.
