Martin is a very loving dog, love kids and other dogs. Loves to go for car rides and to just hand out on your lap. I am returning to work and he needs to be kenneled when gone he has some seperation anxiety. I do not want to leave him kennenemd for 10 plus hours a day while I am at work, it's just not fare to him. He is a licker he licks everyone including the other animals in your house. Super sweet and loving dog.
