Hartley is described by his caregivers as a spirited little boy with lots of determination. He has good balance and loves to walk and run. He especially looks forward to going outside to play. He will act quite shy when new people are around but is generally quick to warm up to them. Behind the scenes, he can often be seen dancing and mimicking whatever’s on TV.
