Like most terriers, this is a very independent breed. One of its more defining traits, though, is the fact that it is far more loyal to food than it ever will be to you. They are notorious for stealing food and begging which puts them in danger of obesity. They are also very affectionate, on the other hand. They tend to wreak havoc on your home if they are left alone for too long due to their short attention spans–they may also mistake the leg of your kitchen table for a really big bone. They’re typically happy dogs and take better to strangers than most terriers do, although they are still a bit reserved upon first contact–that’s their short attention span kicking in, again.
