He is a funny mixture of a real mischief and a dog that shows a dignified coolness that could make a king jaelous! He may also seem as a dog with a strong attitude, but despite his tuff appereance he is a dog with a rather sensible nature.
He can be reserved with strangers, just as the - orginal - standard describes and likes to be the one who takes initiative to say hello.
