The breed's original purpose in brief is said to have been to keep sheep and birds out of unfenced garden areas and guard the small farms, and the dog desired was small, hardy, fast, agile and athletic, with a reserved and watchful temperament. It is helpful to keep the breed's origin and purpose in mind when judging it.
