The PRT is very popular both as a pet, showdog, working dog as well as excelling in a number of other canine activities. The PRT is an active, playful and sturdy breed,
Full of character he is always ready to enjoy whatever the day has to offer. He is a handy, go anywhere, size and generally stays fit and well into old age.
