Temperament

Tiny frame with a huge lovable personality. A gentle and well-mannered puppy who know no fear.  Precautions for their safety must be taken when letting these little ones socialize with larger dogs or children. Their trusting personalities make them loyal and devoted to their owners and family.

Training and Socialization

With their sociable nature and friendly personalities, training is a fairly simple process. They respond exceptionally well to reward based training and lots of praise. Because of their small size, early socialization is important. Exposing them to new sights and sounds will alleviate any anxiety that they may face in the future when met with larger animals or loud noises.

Appearance and Grooming

Pure white coats and a silky straight texture allow these puppies to standout. Their unique stunning locks fall all the way to the ground. Routine maintenance and grooming is very important with this breed to keep their coats smooth and clean. Their long coat can often make it difficult for these pups to see which is why owners put a topknot at the top of their heads. A truly handsome puppy!
