Tip is a very loving dog and loves a lot of attention. He wants petted all the time and can be a little needy at times. We took him and his brother (Rascal) home when they were 6 weeks old. They have always lived together. Rascal tries to dominate Tip and they have had minor fights but have never hurt each other. Tip also likes to be groomed by his brother and his brother likes to groom him. Tip used to live inside the house but after my husband passed away 3 years ago I could not manage him and his brother and moved them outside in a fenced in yard with a doggie door that leads into a heated or air conditioned mudroom. I live in the country so Tip has a lot of things to bark at. I would hope that if possible Tip could be adopted with his brother Rascal. He has a bad habit of jumping up on people. Tip has not really been around kids so I do not know how he would be with them. He has lived with dogs and cats.
