I got my dog from a shelter in 2012 and could not be happier. He loves to cuddle and will make your lap his favorite spot to relax on. He takes naps often but also likes to play with squeaky toys for short amounts of time. My dog requires a minimal amount of grooming and washing due to his short coat. He is suspicious of strangers but once he gets to know you, he will be begging for your love and attention. He is quick to react to strange noises and makes a great guard dog despite his small size. This breed would be ideal for a household with one or two adults and no children or other animals due to his snippy and jealous behavior. He is ideal for an apartment since he does not require much exercise.
