A hunter of both game and vermin, these dogs were as fast as any terrier. They have several similarities to the Irish Wolfhound. In WWI they served as excellent guard dogs and messengers. This breed is seldom seen today.
Some call this breed the ‘Daredevil of Dogdom’. It is independent, assertive, aggressive with other dogs, poor with other pets, and reserved with strangers. It bonds well with its nuclear family, but has a tendency to explore on its own, and thus, to get lost.
