Acquired: Breeder (hobby breeder)
Posted Sep 03, 2015
I remember when I first got Tommy. We went to a family acquaintance who wanted to donate him and his sister since they were too big for that one-room apartment. His sister was prettier than him but something about Tommy caught my eye. He was friendly and liked our presence there, whereas his sister ignored us. We took Tommy home to meet the rest of our family and he felt at home from the beginning.
He enjoyed our yard for all that space he had to explore, liked playing with leaves and trying to catch bugs, though failing to do that. The first week he was a little scared of our dog Greta but he soon realised that she posed no threat.
We had no problems with this type of breed, even though we heard they are sometimes difficult. Our boy was smart, liked touching and having his hair brushed.
He was very independent and at times he would go around the neighbourhood. I think his need to explore got him in the end since he didn't come back after one of his strolls.
