Health Problems


Living Conditions

Good for apartment living. They are fairly active indoors and will do okay without a yard.


These are active dogs with surprising stamina. When not hunting they need a daily pack walk or jog. In addition, they will enjoy a session of play in the park.

Life Expectancy



The smooth-haired coat would do well with a regular rubdown with a damp cloth. This breed is an average shedder.
