From the Foster:

Ferdinand, or Ferdy, or Ferd is the Word, is a super cute little guy.   He's very friendly and adores people and other dogs, and cats too!  He is not so much a fan of sharing his things with other animals though, like his food, or bones but that's not too hard to keep him separated when he gets those treats.  He can get a little guardy around people, too - like, if he's on a lap snuggling he might not want his dog friends to try and come get affection too.  But, we are working on this and I think with consistent reinforcement that he doesn't get to do that he'll learn that getting to stay on a lap when being nice is way more fun that being removed from the lap for being sassy :)

We are working on house training, and he does really well in his crate.  A few protest whines or barks initially and he settles right now.  He sleeps great in bed with his humans at night though, and definitely loves to cuddle the night away.   He is a bit of a barker at noises so an apartment might be tough for him.  I wouldn't say its excessive, but it might be too much for close neighbors! 

Ferd is the Word is really just one of the cutest little chi's I've met - and if you want a super affectionate little doggy always by your side making you laugh - he's your man :)
