Mattie is a sweet little dog part doxie/ part spaniel (not known what specific spaniel breed) she gets along good with kids ages 4 and up and adults. She is too jealous of smaller animals and infants to be good around them. She has been a great companion for over 4 years but due to 'my own issues' as well as the fact that we have a new baby in the family; she would do much better with either adults or older kids (4 and up I am thinking). She's loving and sweet and can be kind of a 'velcro dog' who would want to sleep with you and be with you all that she can. She also has her down time though, sleeping and resting for several hours per day. I have her groomed but when not groomed so often, she has a gorgeous long flowing tail, maybe 5' (flowing hair). Any other questions feel free to ask. She does not pee or poop in the house. She eats grain free 4-health food both wet and dry from tractor supply.
