IN THE CHAT BOX WITH TRUMAN
Truman is a 5yo Aquarian (February 6) Bulldog with a big heart and an ego to match! His favorite past times are eating, sleeping and being the neighborhood watch. Truman believes that he is a STAR! He loves acting, which he does all day long, and truly believes that everyone loves him. He cannot fathom anyone NOT wanting to pet him or say hello. Truman has stated that in the 7th dimension he is the laughing Buddha. He feels that he is supposed to be BIG and his parents do not feed him enough. Truman has zero respect for others' boundaries and is full of drama( and dirty looks) when he's not getting his way. The energy that Truman's personality brings to our home is unparalleled!
