It is an intelligent breed of dog which is usually known to be docile and non-aggressive. These traits can be achieved through proper training, early lessons in socialization and a lot of mental stimulation. [...]

In Japan, it became a thing of royalty, often given as royal gifts to diplomats or important people that did good deeds for Japan.
