This dog was given to us as a puppy. He is generally very calm, with occasional spurts of very energetic playfulness.

Soon after we got him, though, he did get very sick. It lasted about 6 weeks, until he made a full recovery. His health has been very consistent ever since, with only routine checkups.

He is very friendly towards all adults, but very small children can scare him. Toddlers usually get him worked up the most.

He is not aggressive towards anything. He would rather spend his time sitting on the couch or sleeping in people's beds.
