I am a sweet, quiet, rather delicate little 50 pound boy who is looking for a special home that will overlook my minor imperfections. Although my true history will never be known, it appears that I suffered some cerebral anoxia (lack of oxygen) at birth which has left me with some balance issues and lack of hearing. I am able to do stairs although I would go up and down more slowly than other dogs. I know how to use a dog door, which I use faithfully to go out and potty. I get along with other dogs well and have gotten use to my rescue roommate who is a bit overly active for me, but she has learned not to knock me over. For that reason my foster mom thinks a quiet, low energy dog, or a small dog would do well with me. If you are looking for a sweet, gentle little guy, send my foster mom an email after you complete an application. I won’t be a lot of trouble, I promise. I have no eye issues and the few minor skin problems I had from being neglected are almost completely healed. Oh, and I am an excellent eater. I finish every bite.
