From the Foster:

Prince is an absolute gem, extremely sweet and gentle. As a very recent breeder release, he is still not sure of affection from people. He wants to be by everyone, but is afraid of being picked up.  When approaching him, he will run away from you or lay down, but it is slowly changing as he starts to trust me.  Once he is on my lap he is very calm and does enjoy being held.  The first two days here, he barked when left alone, but has not barked since.  I think he would be fine with shared walls. 

At this point, he will go down steps, but with his short little legs hasn't figured out going back up.  He hasn't figured out toys and bones yet, but has starting playing with my resident dogs a little.  I believe he would be okay with little kids around as he has never even come close to nipping, but I believe he would prefer a calm environment which would allow him to overcome his fears.  He is the sweetest guy ever, so I believe once he settles in a little more, he will get over most of his apprehension and be an awesome loving companion.
