No, Dalai is a Maremma aka Pastore Abruzzese. Very much an Italian dog I can tell you! He is always hankering for cheese and loves all the pasta leftovers. Even learnt commands in Italian very soon after we got him..lolol
He was rescued from the SPCA via the Pound and now lives happily, albiet destructively, with our old Maremma, Nelson.
