Originally from Portugal, this dog is large but not massive, it measures about 60cm for 40 pounds. His hair is short and glossy, usually gray, brown or black. Brush it from time to time to keep it shiny! This is a very loyal and loving dog with the family, but distrustful of strangers, he will make an excellent guard dog for your home. This is an animal that needs to exercise: take him for long walks!
