Both breeds have similar temperaments, but some subtle differences deserve attention.
Dogs of both breeds are independent and stubborn, loyal and good protectors. Both eschew strangers and don’t get along with small pets.

Both breeds are very affectionate and loving with their masters. They can be aggressive towards other dogs, but gentle, compassionate and trusting their owners.
