From the Foster:

I have had him since he was about 10 days old, and he came up with his mama & daddy from a shelter in Texas. Mama has already been adopted (yay!) but the boys were too tiny to get neutered at 8 weeks, so they had to wait until 12 weeks. 

He is a very people oriented boy.  He is more of an 'old soul' but he is very curious, and does wonderful little bunny hops all over! :)  He is 100% a LAP DOG, and loves being with you 24/7, but he loves the big world, and enjoys checking out all of the cool things he sees. He will happily lay in my lap and entertain himself for hours while I am working or watching a movie. Otherwise he enjoys exploring the house, and chewing on bones.

He is extremely socialized with other dogs, cats, and school aged kids. Because he is SO tiny and VERY underfoot, I don't recommend a home with infants or toddlers. Seriously, just a two year old tripping over him right now could kill him, and he doesn't understand to get out of the way yet. 

His litter is my first one dabbling in Puppy Culture, and we have done a lot of stuff to work on their neurological stimulation, exploration, exposure, socialization and startle reflex to help them be more well rounded, less anxious and less fearful as adults. Studies have shown dogs in this program really are more well adjusted, and that first 12 weeks is a critical period in their development, acceptance and fear base. I think they have done awesome, even though we haven't gone 'hard core' with it. Please look into this program! There is a lot of neat stuff you can continue to do with them as they grow!
