The weight is in between 22 and 40 kilograms (49 and 88 lb). The ears are large which are almost always found to be erect. The ears are invariably folded back when they make movement. Their skull is found to be sloppy giving a big wedged shaped muzzle. When they are excited, they let this know to the world world by raising their long neck. This neck is in proportion to the body.
