A playful dog that is energetic yet good for seniors as they are lovable and loyal. They actually resemble a dignified elderly gentleman with a moustache and beard. They are well-mannered and fun loving. However, more allotted outdoor activity is needed for this breed, and grooming is also more regular. Seniors who enjoy going to the park or other outdoor recreation activities will enjoy this breed more than the couch potato indoors type. They are easily trained as they are obedient. Even if they are strong-willed and persistent. So generally a great companion for the senior who like the outdoors, but just as great indoors.
