Hi there, thank you very much!
If you’re used to relatively big dogs then it’s actually not that big a transition, just prepare yourself for a lot of shedding! Saints are incredibly loving and full of character. If you were thinking of getting a pup just make sure you’ve got the time for training and exercise wise they should only get about 20 minutes a day as they grow so quickly their bones are still soft up until about 1 year. I definitely think you’d be ready for a saint if you’ve had boxers before. Please let me know if you decide to get one :) x
