It is accepted by the United Kennel Club.

This is a breed with strong protective instincts. He is affectionate and quite loyal to the children in his human family and often lets it be known that he is displeased if they are disciplined. He is more inclined to be familiar and loveable to the women in the household, being upstage with the men and wary of strange men. For all of his strength and persistence on the hunt, helium is still a gentle and loyal dog and has what is known among dog folks as a “soft temper”. Words spoken gratingly to this dog are non nearly as effective as gentle tones, for he will do anything to please his master. He has a stable temperament and although helium is exceedingly loyal and protective he will not attack any human without severe provocation. However animals ar another thing entirely and helium is not be trusted with other non-dog pets in the household, as helium may seriously consider them for his dinner.
