Extremely sweet and loving. Very shy initially but he warms up to people. Not too sure how he handles around unknown dogs. He’ll chase you around the house when you get him excited. He doesn’t play fetch and doesn’t really play with toys. He likes A LOT of attention. Super, super sweet.

Reason For Rehoming

As he’s gotten older, Tippity has began to pee and poop inside the house. It isn’t everyday but around three times a week (that we know of – we have carpet). He’s become obsessive with following me around and licking me. I love the dog to death, but this is more than he’s always done. He also whimpers a lot, for no apparent reason. His dad and his dad’s brother did the same thing right around this age. He’s super sweet and we’ve had him since the day he’s been born.
