Adoption fee: $300
Weight: 11 pounds----------------
Health: Was treated for a very light case of heart worms - no other health issues noted or detected. He's very healthy now. No issues detected from medical exam. --------------
Personality: He's a sweet boy but he does growl for some reason. It's almost like he's talking to you. He does not like it when you yell at anybody or him and he will growl then too. He doesn't like it when you lurk about or hover over him. He will growl.-------------
He will jump in your lap when you sit down and will sit quietly beside you for hours. He loves to carry around his favorite toy in his mouth and he likes it if you play tug with him or throw his toy for him to fetch. He does very well with Grooming and is a great walker on a leash. He has not tried to potty in the house so far but we never promise a dog is House trained. He uses a doggie door very well and likes to spend a lot of time outside sitting in the lawn chairs when the weather is nice. He has the saddest eyes but I don't think he is unhappy. Though I'm sure he would love to have a home of his own. He's a good boy and I have been really enjoying fostering him. ---------------
Origin: The person who found him said she has seen this dog running loose in her neighborhood for almost a year but no clue who was supposed to be caring for him. She finally caught him and brought him to the vet. He was filthy, matted and full of fleas. He's been out on his own for a very long time. He is adjusting to being inside with a family again. ----------------
