Personality: Seamus showed up on the block of an ACCT employee and hasn't stopped charming us since. He's a nugget of love and would prefer to be sitting on you rather than alongside you. He's got some spunk as well and is quite playful and down for the adventure. After getting some excitement out he walks well on leash, and afterwards will settle right down for a snooze -- with your lap as a pillow. Bring Seamus home and find the little spoon of your dreams.
