Chilli is a sweet attentive boy once he knows and trusts you and is wary of strangers. He takes time for him to trust. Some say he has characteristics of a Portugese Podengo. He is determined, a very fast learner and will bond closely with his new owner. He has an obedient character (once he has you trained) and an affectionate nature. Chilli requires discipline, exercise and attention and he loves to play. He is loyal and fearless and a good watchdog with a loud bark when needed. He bonds closely to one owner and seems to prefer women however does not mind some men. Chilli is agile and will jump low fencing easily and push through gates. He needs a person skilled at obedience training. He likes to be around people and is social with other dogs but does not really bond with another dog. He has a short coat and weighs 5.4kg.
