These dogs are amazing! They do everything we ask and keep on giving! Our dog, Sunny, just won Rally, Obedience, and Confirmation ribbons at both our County Fair and an Open Show, and she took the overall High Point Dog award at County Fair. Our daughter is over the moon. The dog is fantastic with kids, cats, and other dogs, but is protective enough that we let the kids run outside with her without fear that anyone (or thing) could get close enough to them to hurt them. She is kind, loving, puts up with a lot, but is protective of the entire family when it is called for. This combination is just the best of the best as far as we are concerned!
