He is very friendly and sweet. Hyper when he needs to walk, but otherwise docile. Will lie quietly at your feet. Always wants belly rubs. He will fetch the ball once and then lie down and turn over for a belly rub. He was well behaved at vet around both cats and dogs. He met the one potential brother at park and they just sniffed each other. He is fine with our granddaughter, but too big for her. She's 9 and very thin, so he bowls her over from excitement.
