This handsome guy would also be happy outside with appropriate shelter and fencing to run, root in the dirt and make mud holes. When it comes to new human friends, he would be comfortable with adults or children over 12-years-old. With other animals, he is fond of dogs, but should never be left unattended, even if they become fast friends.
