Hunter's mom says: Hunter is a Lhasa mix who was adopted from a shelter when he was 2 years old. He is now age 4 and is an alert and bright adult dog. He loves children and frequently modulates his response and moods according to his surroundings and the people around him. For example, he behaves like a polite guest when visiting friends and other people's houses. However, he assumes the role of guard/sentinel dog and barks ferociously at strangers and not-so-familiar visitors near his home (unfortunately, the postman is not a visitor that Hunter has registered as part of his inner circle).In short, he's a typical and lovable mutt.
