Chaos’ Temperament Tests, 2006
GloryToo’s & Soleil’s father; Mercy’s & Lovely’s maternal grandfather
Chaos’ breeder did not do a formal temperament test, so Suzan did the police/narcotics test when he arrived.
He was 8 weeks old.

Tester Comments: Nice pup – very solid and courageous. Has a good bit, full mouthed with toys and pull toy. Nice reaction to train and umbrella. Gets along with other dogs well (met her dogs afterwards). Good nose – found food easily and liked looking for it, followed direction of handler. Nicely encouraged. Great little boy!
