The American Bobtail breed was developed basically to bear harsh environments and survive feral conditions. The breed was developed around 1960, and breeders continued keeping that strong, beautiful-looking breed.
The coat comes in two lengths; a double layer, thick and short coat and another medium-long one. Both give marvelous look with the brown/black swirling and golden color gradient on the background.
The playful character of this breed makes it the best for kids as they tend to be like dogs, learning tricks and greeting their owners when they return home. They love to play with their owners and they can spend hours on a hide-and-seek game. They are also quite tender when they recognize the sadness or distress on their owner, such that they could offer a hug and soft shoulder to cry on.
