Sweet little boy who was running around Richardson on his own. He's most definitely a lap dog and wants to be with his human. He is sleeping in a crate at night and is crated when I'm gone during the day. There is some minor whining when I leave the house and excited barking when I get back. Other than that very little barking. He gets along well with other dogs but is somewhat bossy. He is not completely housebroken yet but has come a long way since he was neutered. Given the chance he will dash out the door so I just don't give him the chance anymore. Loves to go for walks and does well on a leash. I put his harness on with no problems - he looks terrific in red!
