Akc registered. Neutered. Microchipped. He does have ongoing ear problems (as most peis do). He is also on a vegan dog food diet due to bowel and digestion issues with any foods containing meat, sweet potatoes, or grains. We have 4 small children and he has never harmed or acted aggressive towards any of them. He is very friendly with strangers and other dogs. If you are in distress or worry, he feels it. He's a very loving pet.
