Bred to protect and accompany the bargemen and boat captains of 17th century Holland, this breed makes a superlative companion. Fluffy, exuberant, and loving, his lively intelligence makes him a wonderful addition to any home. Don’t count on any guard duty, though. This friendly pup accepts anyone you bring home, and won’t go beyond a peremptory bark of alert.
