Lots and lots of love! My Millie was shy for a few days, being away from her siblings and stuff. She took to me after that, the most loyal and loving dog I've ever had. They need lots of play! And it will get rough at times cause they're very strong. Millie has been no worse to raise than any other dog I've owned, you just have to be persistent. She is a year now and the only problem I have is some chewing when she gets bored. It helps to buy her lots of cheap stuffed animals, they keep her occupied when we can't be there.
