This little dog will love to be joined to your hip. They will bark when strangers come around, but an extra bonus is that they are hypoallergenic. They do not shed because they have actual hair rather than fur, but remember that they will need regular trims and brushing. They are friendly and love to sit on the lap of their owners. The toy version of this dog fits right into a small bag and they make great companion dogs. These dogs are quite fragile so you should be careful to not leave them around small children or large dogs.
