Spero is a dog of both world, energetic and lazy. He has the endurance for 5-8 mile hikes and at the same time can be as lazy as a couch potato. If you decide you need an energetic dog to hike with you, he's there. If you need peace and quiet, he will also make that happen. Spero can be territorial with his personal space but an assertive handler showing leadership will do the job. He would be best in a home with no kids. Once he trusts you, he will be your shadow. He is definitely very loyal and affectionate. He also loves the company of other dogs and is crate and doggie door trained.
Caution: With his long legs, he can easily leap over a 4 feet baby gate like nobody's business so a house with secure solid fencing would be ideal.
