Originally Austrian, this dog is muscular and has good bones. His hair is short, shiny and smooth. It is mostly black with fawn ends; brush from time to time. This is a very intelligent dog that learns quickly. It is also affectionate and loyal, he gets along well with the whole family and other animals in the house if it was used to at a young age. Caution: if you want to adopt one, make him exercise very often and therefore it will not adapt to apartment living.
