They can survive for a long time in relative terms and it is not uncommon for these dogs to live for anything up to about fifteen years.

This dog sheds its coat twice a year. Grooming this breed is easy. Combing and brushing is necessary on a regular basis and a firm bristled brush should be used. Bathing can be done very rarely.
