Relaxed  friendly couch potato. He will go on long walks but can only fetch a ball a dozen times when he decides he would just like to be pet for awhile. Very gentle mouth. He can actually retrieve an egg without breaking it but lakes the play drive to make a good working dog. Very tolerant of kids and other dogs. I an walk him through a crowd of people and dogs at a park and trust he will be well mannered and not be out of controll. He is just about the perfect family pet.He
