Hovawart image
The name Hovawart is from a German word for guardian. The breed may date back to the 13th century. Hovawarts have a protective instinct and even disposition. They are kind, self-confident, dignified, intuitive and discerning. They are alert and highly intelligent with medium temperament. Hovawarts can be willful and dominant toward other dogs and are frequently distrustful of strangers.
