My dad and I were looking for a small breed dog and when my dad and I saw this little dude with a beard, we fell in love with him! He's now a year and 10 months. He's a new years baby! He loves to chase the chipmunks in our back yard and take walks through the woods near our house. His favorite toy is his teddy bear. He grabs the bears nose with his mouth and slowly falls asleep. He's done it since he was a puppy (must remind him of his mommy). He's a wonderful dog and I can't imagine life without him.
