Mortimer had languished at the Downey shelter for a long time until he was transported to the Castaic shelter where we saw and fell in love with him. He is such a distinguished fellow, all he needs is a tweed jacket and a pipe and he could star in a movie as an English professor. He is sweet and lovable but is particular about being picked up, which he does not enjoy much and he will let you know so. His tail is paralyzed due to an old injury, which could be the reason for his dislike of being picked up too. the good news about this is that you won't have to worry about knick knacks being knocked down by a wagging tail :). He gets along wonderful with all the dogs here and walks well on a leash. He will make a marvelous friend and companion to a lonely heart.
He is about 5 years old, and weighs approximately 10-12 pounds. He is neutered, micro chipped and up to date with all his shots.
Please call 661-724-0642 if you would like to meet him
