The breed may appear aristocratic but in fact, this dog breed is far from uptight! Mateses are friendly and playful so expect lots of fun. They can also be quite clingy and ask for a lot of attention so if you’re not going to be home all the time, it’s best to get them used to being away from you while they’re still puppies.
