I ve had brown since he was born. He is a very trained dog. Very playful and overly protective.If you don t like to play a lot he isn t the dog for you.He loves to run outside. He is 5yrs old but has a attitude of a puppy. Also he is potty trained he will tell you when he has to go, when he is hungry or when he just wants to play. Very smart dog acts almost human time from time.
