Short walks twice a day should be plenty to keep this breed healthy, and in shape.  

    This breed does shed often and will need to be brushed frequently to avoid tangles and to keep their fur clean. Their ears and eyes should be cleaned regularly and the nails should be cut every two to three weeks. Occasional trimming may be required. You should feed a high quality dry food that is intended for oral care, which will help keep their teeth healthy and strong.

This breed may be prone to develop certain health issues, such as skin allergies, dental disease and heart issues. This is typically a healthy breed and with the proper care it has a life expectancy of 10-14 happy years!
