    "Very Beautiful"
    Pros - Cool shape, beautiful dancer, good mate, and okay parent.
    Cons - Not the best flyer and wasn't a great parent the first time through it.
    We have had our one male (Reuben) for about half a year. Reuben is very tame and loving to people. He has had two kids who are both cross breeds, but he really didn't know how to raise them till the second one.
