Height and Weight 35.5 - 39 cm in height and 9-9.5 Kg in weight. Males are females are about the same size.

Common Health Problems An alround healthy breed. If anything may suffer from glaucoma, epilepsy and thyroid problems.

Living Conditions Will be happy in the country or a town. Although if living in a town house it will need to have a garden and a securely fenced one at that.

Exercise Requirements An active, energetic breed which needs a good long daily walk or a couple of shorter walks a day including time at the park.

Training Requirements Pretty average when it comes to obedience training. They do best with firm and consistence, reward based training methods. A strong willed breed not always willing to do as you would like.

Life Expectancy 14 years.

Grooming The dense, hard and wiry coat needs a good brush at least once a week to prevent matting and tangles. The coat also needs stripping 3 or 4 times a year. Some owners have the coat clipped, which is cheaper, but it changes the coat texture and colour.
