Ali is a senior boy, around 11 years old. He had one of his back legs amputated years ago after being hit by a car. He still gets around remarkably well for a senior tripod, though! He takes a glucosamine supplement daily, but does not require any other long-term medications.
Ali is on antibiotics and is taking Heartgard every 2 weeks. He was only a faint positive for heartworms, so we are hopefully that he will be negative in 6 months or so.
Ali lives with another male dog. He is dominant and a bit bossy, but they get along well now that they have the dynamic figured out. We would not recommend him for a home with another dominant dog. He seems uninterested in dog savvy cats, but he may chase a cat if it runs. He'd be fine with children of any age.
