I know that she has told me that you have to be careful when they are outdoors, because they can become overheated and get heat exhaustion in about 15 min. if it is hot. Hers are absolutely inside dogs.
She has grandchildren that are around them a lot and they do fine with the kids.
They do blow their coats twice a year and that is a lot of fur....hers are stunningly beautiful.
She has shared pics and stories with me about some of the rescues that she has participated in.
People don't realize just how big these beautiful creatures get and then just end up mistreating them in unbelievable ways because they are very time consuming.
I am not sure about the amount they eat. I will find out for you when she returns.
