This little senior gentleman is just getting thru his vetting and will be so happy to get rid of that pesky lampshade!! But he's cruising around the back patio and checking out his foster siblings. He seems to have great social skills with other small dogs (which are all we've seen him around) but he's not real sure of strange humans yet. We don't know if that attitude will chance as he settles in or if he's always going to be kind of a 'one person' or 'one family' kind of guy.
He came in with lots of mats and indications of rather lax care but good nutrition and some grooming is already making a difference in those problems....
