One of these pictures is from his "baby book" (and, admittedly, he was only this size for about an hour ). He has grown into a gorgeous, healthy mush who is ready to steal hearts.
Walter's vaccinated, heartworm-negative, and housetrained. He'll be neutered and microchipped before long and then will be ready to make some lucky family's home complete.
Walter walks reasonably well on leash with a harness. He gets along with SOME other (female) dogs) though we are seeking an only dog placement for Walter.. He has not been cat-tested. He'll need a traditional six-foot fenced yard. His favorite place is in the nearest easy chair. He loves to play with a giant-sized Kong toy and with his basketball. Alas, he's afraid of his metal water bowl (what a wuss) and the basement. Kids should be at least 6 or 7 years old.
Don't dawdle. Walter is anxious to meet you.
