I swear this dog is my husband in the canine form. He is very much attached to him, following every step he takes from the movement he walks in the door after work. And during the day he takes on the role of family protector – defending the yard with all of his mite! If there is anything from a squirrel to a noise from a car door closing he will alert us all with a bark. You can actually see his body relax once my husband get home. They say people start to look like their dogs – well Dude definitely takes on their persona!
