He can be timid, but is SO handsome and a true romantic known to spoil visitors in affection in the form of snuggles!
He is Mr. Reliable and a confident character. He is often led by Niki at the front of the pack with a no nonsense approach.
Cute and known to be the slow coach on a walk. He maybe the smallest but he is definitely the boss.
