Carter was hiding in someone's bushes and would not leave. He can still be a bit timid, but has come a long way; he is super sweet. He loves to run in the yard. He walks fairly well on a leash. He will go in a crate, esp when scared. He is HW+, but we will provide treatment with Doxycycline. You really could not ask for a sweeter dog. He does not have a tail, but the vet believes he was born w/o one. He has a cracked front tooth, most likely from being hit in the face with something like a bat.
