Brier is a very loving, high energy want to be lap dog. He knows basic commands and is eager to please. His manners could use some work and he is protective of his toys. He loves to play fetch, run and enjoys the water. He does well off leash in areas without distractions. He is house trained, requires a fenced yard, crate trained and knows how to use a doggy door. He does well with smaller female dogs, but has recently become aggressive with the other male dog in the household.
