While nothing is known about Sebastian's past, it is evident that he had a rough life, and we are doing everything we can to restore his health. Despite the hardship he has been through, Sebastian is as sweet and friendly as can be. He just goes with the flow, never demanding your attention but happily soaks it up when you offer it to him, which you will do involuntarily once you see his handsome smile and blocky head.
Sebastian gets along famously with everyone he has met--well, um, except for chipmunks and rabbits. Don't let his creaky joints fool you, because he is an adept hunter and fancies himself Chief Security of the Yard. He is also an aspiring gardener; we hear he just learned to dig his first hole!
Wouldn't you love to be the one to share his adventures and witness his rags-to-riches transformation in person? Please contact us if you would like to help us pack a lifetime of joy and happiness into Sebastian's twilight years. He is being fostered in Iowa, and his adoption fee is $600.
Please see Sebastian's webpage for additional updates and photos: http://ragom.org/avail.cgi/Available/dog?dog_id=7059.
