Meet Gideon! This tiny guy is the sweetest little thing and will melt your heart!  He gets along with everybody and all animals.  He's been living among three cats, a dog and several neighbor dogs and loves friendly interactions with all of them. Check out this cute video of Gideon playing here! If you love a small dog who would love a spot in your bed, he's your guy!  If you love getting little ear kisses, he's your guy!  He's currently wearing diapers inside to avoid any indoor accidents, but will still go outside if he gets frequent outside potty breaks.  He only barks if he's excited to see you and it is the sweetest little bark.  He can go up/down a couple stairs on the deck, but hasn't been able to tackle the wooden stairs in the house yet; they're too slippery.  He loves to play with small toys and fetch small balls.  He's not a fan of walks (leashes make him a bit nervous) and would prefer just frolicking around in the yard. Does he sound like your perfect companion?
