Buddy is super sweet and will give you kisses once he is comfortable. He takes him a minute to warm up to men. He goes into his kennel willingly with or without a treat but he will let you know he does not like to be left in it if you are in the other room. Vocal boy! Buddy does great in the kennel at night.....no messes during the night or day so far! He is a great watch dog! Likes to tell you about the people walking down the street and the mailman is super exciting lol! He loves walks and will pull a bit at first but settles down. However he can be reactive to other dogs when he is on the leash. Buddy LOVES to sniff everything!
