From Petfinder – While you might be drawn to the Turkish Van for his fascination with water, you’ll fall in love with the breed for his other qualities. ‘Vans are energetic, agile, and intelligent. They are extremely healthy and, get along with people swimmingly,’ notes one Van owner. You may need a few months of working out to keep up with them, however; Vans are famous for their ‘action-packed’ temperament. They are talkative, demanding of attention, and show great gusto at dinnertime. Breeders also say that Vans are known for their attachment to their human companions, and sometimes that makes transferring a Van from one household to another difficult.
