As a landrace, this breed is highly intelligent, adaptable, and Pack-oriented—once bonded, they will give their lives for family. They’ve been in the Americas for at least 14,000 years and are considered a primitive breed, since their lineage was not the subject of intense human breeding goals. While they can make excellent pets, be prepared to adopt an equal who will test your wits.
