These gentle giants are beloved for good reason. They are sweet, devoted, and bond for life with their Pack. While they were originally bred to hunt wild boar, over the centuries the ferocity original to their nature has been bred out of them. Sleek and elegant, they carry themselves with a regal air, but are just as comfortable playing the clown.
