Yes, they are! I had a little female that lived to be 18 years old. Her little knee joints would pop out of joint. Her name was BooBoo and she was so precious, but good grief, she barked if the wind blew! Then I had a little male that I named , (and I am sure you will laugh), "Killer" because he barked so much. I even had a "Beware of Dog" sign that I put on the door. It was such a hoot when people saw him.
It is my pleasure!
