Gintarė said in an interview with Kas Vyksta:
Sometimes we make our trips around town at night just to avoid all the attention. Hanga is a very protective dog and is wary of strangers. If there are a lot of them, it could get tense.
The character of the Komondor breed is protective, they are generally passive dogs, they were bred to protect livestock and their instinct is generally vigilant to act only if they feel their space is being invaded or if they see problems.
Gintare loves his huge pet, the woman found him in Hungary seven years ago. She remembers driving 1300 miles just to get home, they like to go out for a walk and Hanga is a celebrity.
The komondor requires training, he is very good at learning, and due to his temperament, size and agility, it is recommended to start from puppies aged 4 to 8 months.
The coat of this dog breed is usually short and fluffy white, the characteristics of dreadlocks grow with the maturity of the dog, acquiring the characteristic shape, and it can take up to 6 years; some care is needed to maintain the coat.
Gintarė is very happy to have Hanga by her side, she likes to take her for walks and the huge dog takes care of her and her family, she is very protective.
