Cruz is a little over 6 years old, and a little over 20 pounds. 
He's an energetic, playful, obedient, fun loving companion.
He is fully housetrained. He loves, and needs a bit of exercise.
He has had seizure problems, and is possibly epileptic. He is on a generic brand of Keppra to control them, and is doing well on this medication. We have only seen 3 seizures in the 10 months he has been on it. He takes a partial pill with his morning and evening meals.

He is trained to sit, stay and come, and will do so even with minor distractions. He is starting to fetch, but is somewhat possessive with toys so he needs some work in that area.
He is intimidated by larger dogs, but he is fine with smaller dogs, and does enjoy playing with them. We are not sure how he is with cats, but wouldn't expect any problems. He is a bit nervous and will do best in a generally quiet environment.

Our Adoption Process...

Applications are screened and references checked for both veterinarian and renters. Phone interview is conducted and if a potential match we will arrange a playdate. To move forward with a potential placement we require a home visit and introduce existing pets to the new pet. If successful a 72-hour home trial is mandatory. To give the applicant possession of the pet the applicant must fill out the Adoption Contract and pay the adoption fee. The contract and adoption fee is held for the 72-hour trial period. If placement is desired at the end of the trial period the organization signs and executes the contract. A copy of the contract along with medical records will then be forwarded to the adopter. 1 week, 1 month, 3 month, and 6 month follow-ups are conducted.
