I really love my humans and dog friends!
Cuddles was born about October 9, 2009 and weighs 17 lbs. He has been wonderful with all of us and is great with children. He came with a dog buddy so it would be nice for him to live with another dog or to have a human around much of the time. We are told that they both would poop in the house at times, but they are here because their human didn't have enough time to give them a proper life so we are hoping that won't be a problem in a new home with a little work at first. He is good on leash and great in a car. Cuddles will hang with you while you are outside doing your chores and he is so cute that when his new foster mom walks in the room he does a dance and coos. Cuddles has been to Cornell for skin issues we can discuss more of if someone is truly interested. Allergy testing was done and no allergens were found. Oddly enough we have seen little trouble in the 6 weeks he's been here. We wanted to give him a chance to settle in before writing this description to see what we found out about him and yet we are unsure what to say on this topic. Anyway, he is an amazingly loving boy that is going to make someone very happy. Update: His skin did flare up and he had awful red spots and was chewing out his fur. Well, with all the vet work he had no use in us taking him to the vet so we decided to try something easy - Convenia! It is a two week injectable antibiotic. We did it once and he improved, we did it again in two week and continued improvement, then it lasted a month and he has just one little spot. We are giving one more. This one drug seems to be solving the problem and he is growing back new fur on all the old red spots. He is comfortable, really happy, and it seems that he is also very appreciative! So, as for the future...well, perhaps if this is given a few more times the problem will be completely gone OR perhaps this will have to be done on an as needed basis throughout the rest of his life. There sure are worse things and more expensive meds that many dogs need on a daily basis. It is a subq injectable so a vet may be able to give you enough for a couple doses so that you can nip any 'spots' in the bud before they get inflamed. Other than this he is a healthy little guy that has had about every test done known to man.
