Pinto is a Natural-Born Clown and his zest for life is absolute.  He bounces.  Happily.  Which can sometimes be very tiresome as he takes the shortcut to the water bowl over the back of the sofa  - especially when one is feeling frail.  This being said, he still remains the preferred dog to cuddle under a duvet with, as he climbs in, settles down and cuddles up without plastering.  His enjoyment of life is shown very clearly on the 4x4xPinto photo underneath.

A star of stage and screen he has appeared in many still  photo shoots, TV commercials and live stage productions and is currently starring on the 94.7 Billboard on the M1 South.
