Six-toed and flexible, this is one pooch that isn’t satisfied with a single level of existence. They’re notorious climbers, a tendency amplified by their courage and curiosity. As an active and intelligent dog, this pup will find entertainment for itself if you aren’t around—which means digging and destruction. If you choose this wonderful breed, consistent training, socialization, and company are a must.
