Bruno absolutely loves humans. He wants to be a lap dog! He is completely house broken & cage trained. He sleeps in his cage every night and sometimes during the day. He would prefer to sleep with a human. No problem with my 2 and 4 yo grand children. He is a good sized boy about 65-70lb so I make sure he doesn't overwhelm them. He lives with two cats and two other dogs without any problems. We live in the country, 60 acres of land. When a dog comes onto HIS property that he doesn't know he thinks it is his job to protect us from the stranger so he becomes aggressive. I love him very much but think he would be better with someone who had a confined yard where other dogs can't invade his space. I feed all three dogs at same time & place and he is fine, however when we have other dogs here I try to separate the feedig to make sure all is well & he doesn't become aggressive.
