Larry is AKC--home-raised with a lot of attention many times a day so he will be a very social puppy--this stays with him the rest of his life. His fur is non-shed, hypo-allgenic, easy grooming. Larry will be good with kids and other pets. He is a terrier and he will have spirit and spunky but can be taught to do many things if you a mind too, like fetch a ball , they love to do that, and aglity. He will have his lst puppy shots/dewormed/socialized/newspaper trained--then started potty training outside. I do ship--if necessary.
