My 6 month old Maltese loves to be carried in this purse. She hangs her little head out and just chills. It's to the point that she likes to be carried around the house while I do my chores and my hands can be free. Great for riding in the car too! I got the blue one which is very stylish, it looks just like a dark denim fabric. The purse has great padding throughout, it is of perfect length, and I love the outer pocket where you can put your wallet or phone.
