1. Describe the breed in three words. MB: Energetic, watchful and fearless BLC: Physically—square, medium size and elegant; mentally—loyal, obedient and alert. MJ: Courageous, loyal and a family dog. LK: In words not in the standard, but in more personal terms from living with them over the years, my three words (plus a bonus word) are athlete, brilliant, humor- ous and devoted. RV: Muscular, square and sound. Breed character can be described in three words as a young Clint Eastwood.
